Default Pic Files from camera to USB Flash Memory?

Can The pic files in the camera memory (SD in camera) be offloaded to one of the new USB Flash memory devices by plugging the device directly into the camera? Device may be Lexar Jumpdrive, Sandisk Cruzer, Trekstor Thumbdrive, etc. Minolta F100 camera.

USB is a host/slave (unlike Firewire). PC right now are the only host, all other devices are slaves (ie camera, Jumpdrive, Cruzer, etc). Two slaves can't talk to one another.

USB on-the-GO is trying address this deficiency, unlike any two Firewire devices (ie two video cameras) that can exchange control data or record from another independently of (or with) a PC!
