Usually, memory cards need card reader or USB cable to transfer data to computer. Whereas, Usb stick can be directly connected to any USB port or hub i.e. it doesn’t require separate card reader to transfer data to computer. Generally, older versions of Windows based pc need to have a driver to connect Usb memory card. Now, almost all of the USB flash drives can be read directly by the latest versions of Windows Operating System like Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 etc. Whenever you connect memory card or usb drive to computer, they are assigned a drive letter. Sometimes, you might accidentally remove Usb stick from computer while transferring data from USB drive to computer leading to data loss.
