Do you do it? Why not?? Could save you plenty of "what is on this disk" moments

ALAKAZAM (currently H:)
A 500GB (actually 465GB, how do they get away with advertising that) external hard drive that's pretty much everything. I back it up occasionally. Named so because it remembers everything for me. Haha.

A simple 4GB flash drive that happens to look like Mega Man's Mega Buster. Multipurpose.

A 500MB SD used with my camera. Frank West, the protagonist of Dead Rising, is a freelance photojournalist.

A 2GB SD card I use with my Wii for emulating other game consoles (so it's like the Wii is transforming into a SNES or GBA for a time, I'm the cleverest). I have to do SOMETHING with the Classic Controller, right?

A 1GB SD card used for Brawl mods and what few custom New SMB Wii levels I have (minor power-up/Yoshi additions to existing levels).

My computer's internal hard drive. In Half-Life 2, Dr. Breen is the human ruler of Earth... but really not much more than a puppet of the Combine. And he's also a total scumbag. Here, this is the brain of my computer, but I don't store anything on it, so it doesn't have a whole lot of real value. If it died right now the only things I'd lose and be unable to get back would be a comic I'm working on, and my KVIrc logs. It'd be a pain to get some of the programs I need, but that's all.

An 8GB SDHC. I use this one with my 3DS, which means it's got a lot of songs on it.

A 2GB microSD used with my DS flash card. It's tiny, but impressive, and it could blow at any time. Like the bomb maker from Zelda: The Minish Cap that it's named after.

A 1GB microSD used with my cell phone, whenever that's needed. Sissel is the main character from Ghost Trick, whose one way of traveling great distances is through phone lines.

I used to use this 4GB flash drive to play video files on my 360 until I got an HDTV. Now I just use an HDMI cable and stream whatever I want to watch straight from my PC. Viewtiful Joe takes place inside Movieland, which is just what it sounds like; the world of movies.

I have one other 1GB SD that used to be DITTO until I got my 3DS and switched it out for the 2GB SD it included. Right now it's nameless, as I don't have a use for it.

Whoever wins... has to change into a yellow outfit, okay?

Umm... Skeleton? What the f***, bro? I just say 'Put the disc in here.' *Presses button*

I see darkness all around
And I'm lost but can be found up in the sky

I'm pretty traditional. My C: drive is named Local Disk.

Computers count in base 2, advertisements count in base in 10.

Most of mine are default, with a couple exceptions:
-My Z: drive is a 1 TB external named Anime, because the majority is filled with just that: hundreds of gigabytes of archived anime. :P
-I named my first flash drive FD, but it's in a bit of disrepair currently.
