Many computer users now carry flash drives to keep personal files in a convenient, portable device. Many drives like the SanDisk Cruzer can hold up to 64 gigabytes of data. You can play music files on a flash drive through an amplifier by using a computer and a 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch converter cable. The audio signal will move from the computer's headphone jack to the amplifier. The entire connection process can be completed within a few minutes.
