Welllllll.... I guess those are very literal interpretations of the names. Very good work finding those.
I've heard that before, but I still think USB drive isn't specific enough; as I stated earlier, there are many kinds of USB Drives. None the less, if someone just blurted out "where's my USB drive," I would think flash drive, not a hard drive with a USB connector or something like that.
It appears that so far, (USB) Flash Drive has won.

Many people here call it (in Swedish) “USB memory stick”, “memory stick”, “USB stick” or simply “the stick” (on the subject of portable data storage, “put it on the stick”). In rare cases it’s called “USB memory card”, because it’s put in the same category as other memory cards in online stores.
