The USB powered one means you dont need to carry a bulky power supply around with you, ideal for laptops etc. And yes 100MB disks work in a 250MB drive.

As for speed, i'd say it takes about 3 mins to download 100MB from a 100MB drive to my PC. I think uploading to the drive takes a bit longer but I just leave it and get on with something else. Not sure about 250MB disks as I don't any.
