flash drive question -- can it be incompatible with FreeBSD

Hi everybody,

While looking for a new USB flash drive, I found that some of them come with:
- U3 feature
- ReadyBoost feature
- security software, either pre-installed or zipped on the drive
- hardware data encryption
Some of them need partitioning/formatting.

My question is: is there anything that would prevent me from using such drives on FreeBSD machine?
Google shows that U3 can be uninstalled. What about other "features"?

Thank you in advance.
