Could DVDs soon go the way of the VHS? One company is trying to find out.

A company called PNY is trying to make the movies you buy and carry around as small as possible. It's now selling the movie Ghostbusters on a small USB flash memory stick. It fits on a key chain or in your pocket.

But are people ready to switch from a DVD to a USB?

"I just think I'd stick with DVDs for now," one woman said.

"I'd choose the USB one just because of the size," a man told us.

At this point, the flash drive movie is only being sold in Europe as a test market. And while some tech experts say putting a movie on a flash drive is easy, it's the fact that someone is trying to take on the DVD format that they find interesting.
