  • Best Answer:

    There is essentially no difference. SDD refers to a "solid state drive," that is a hard drive that has flash (think computer chips) memory instead of spinning magnetic platters. It's "solid" in that there are no moving parts. Flash refers to the type of memory that's built into SSDs, USB Drives, Camera memory, etc.
