Thinking more about this, I'd just say "USB drive" from the start.

What about UMS? That might work, not sure that most will grok it yet.

Plus, there's the MTP protocol, that covers some mobile device usage:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/B2G/USBMassStorage#History
"Prior to Android Honey Comb (HC), UMS was the common way to share data when plugging your phone into your PC. However, requiring that the entire partition be shared lead to people running out of space in the sdcard partition while lots of space remained in /data or vice-versa. With HC and ICS, Android introduced a new way of sharing information called Media Transfer Protocol (MTP), which is a file based protocol. With the advent of MTP, it is now possible to have /data and /sdcard both exist in the same partition. UMS is still supported under ICS, but practically isn't usable on all phones."
