QFT, transfering blu-ray quality data to a flash device in stores is a long way off. Not because of size limitations, but rather because of transfer speeds. With a sustained 50MB/s write speed, it would take about 17 minutes to copy 50GB of data to such a device. Getting that much throughput on a USB flash drive with atleast 50GB of space isn't happening now, and won't be for quite a while, let alone at speeds fast enough or at prices low enough for convenience.
