Then it wouldn't hurt either to use an existing file system that allows
random seeking (i.e., any modern file system) and is widely supported by
major operating systems (FAT-16 and VFAT, I'm afraid).  Then you could
simply use a CompactFlash card or USB flash stick as the storage medium.
I think that CompactFlash would be easiest.  However, you'd have to use
all 16 bits of the interface instead of just 8 bits.
