Explanation:
I can't find anything by this name, however based on the description it sounds like it could be a flash drive, external hard drive, thumb drive, memory stick, etc. I think you would be best served to use a term that covers all these possibilities.

PORTABLE MEDIA READERS/PORTABLE MEDIA DRIVES

After another look I think what is meant here is not the memory device itself, as I indicated above but the device that reads the memory device. These could be card readers, optical drives etc.

I think the most generic term would be ...

PORTABLE MEDIA READERS/PORTABLE MEDIA DRIVES

However in the translation since the 'Portable' is already indicated by 'transportar' this is how I would phrase it.

"computer drives and media drives for portable storage devices"
