what do you mean.

we need more info to solve your problem?

if you mean to transfer data then as far as i know they all are.

also pendrives can have linux on them and can be booted from if the bios is fairly new.

Pendrive is a normal removable hard disk in it's nature, only that it is smaller and thus has less capacity. Because of that not all linux distros can be installed onto every pendrive (due to lack of space), and you need a "newer" bios to be able to boot from USB. However, if you just wish to transfer data to it (i.e. pictures, music, texts, etc.) you should be able to do that normally.
