my friend is giving me his flash drive, though it is a sandisk 4GB and the software is not compatible for MAC, but I would have delete the software anyway. Will it work with mac, after all it is just storing and carrying info???

any flash drive should be compatible. if he had it formatted ntfs for some reason, you'll just have to reformat it with disk utility as FAT32 or HFS+ (if you don't think you'll ever connect it to a windows machine).Please participate in our Member of the Month polls.

It didn't occur to me before using my SanDisk flash drive that it might not work for any reason! It does fine."Suffer the little children..." compassion.com

It'll work fine. Like you say, the security software won't be any good, but in my experience the same goes on Windows anyway. I set one with the same password I have used for years, and the second time I used it it forgot the password and formatted the data partition.
Just don't format it with the HFS system (Mac) if you want to read it with a PC.
