    Default ZTE Modem

    I have a ZTE modem which we have not used for quite a few years. It is 12.3 gigs in size with a USB connection, I presume USB2.
    Should I throw it in the bin, or is it of some use - eg, as a flash drive, or am I getting carried away?

    A modem, or router is not a storage device.
    Bin it

    kinda is a storage device, they put some flash ram in them to store the software if I remember correctly. But not especially worth keeping, I bought 3 x 32GB USB 3 flash drives for under $20 total recently.

    Where did you buy them, and what brand/model? Kind to share?

    was a bit longer ago than I thought. Was these ones https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/MEM...-Swivel-Cap-De

    They were $7.60 each when I bought them about a year ago (not that recent after all) which is a little over $20. Bad memory sorry. They are still pretty cheap though. My first 32GB USB 3 drive was over $100 way back when.
