My document referrs to a "USB compatible data storage device " - what I'd like to do is use that phrase once, and put "memory stick" or "thumb drive" in parens after it, and then use the more common phrase thereafter. (I'm trying to make the document more readable).  Should I use memory stick, thumb drive, or other phrase? and if so, what? I've heard those thingies referred to by a lot of terms.
