For the record, don’t try any of the Sony MicroVault Tiny range. Despite the name, they’re actually slightly too large to fit into the USB connector without some serious modification (ie fiddly cutting and filing of the metal connector). The plastic outer casing comes off easily enough, but it quickly turns into a nasty mess after that.
2 hours and counting, and the bloody thing STILL won’t quite fit right.
There’s actually no foul play here.
We’re working with Fred, and if you’ll notice, they even give proper credit on the product page.
Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories.

I did this last week based off of the evilmadscientist article, which I think I read from WIRED. Anyways, it is really easy to do, as long as you have access to a really small flash drive.
Thanks for the updates.
A good cheap, widely available drive to use for this would be Sony’s microvault.
