I play Minecraft on my breaks at work, but would like to be able to save my files to a flash drive do I dont have to have two separate computers with different files. It'd be nice to be able to play the same worlds at home, or work. Anyone know if this works, or if it causes complications?

Minecraft Portable
With it, you can play from any computer with a good graphics card regardless if it has Java or not.

It's easy.
Navigate to C: users > [YOURNAME] > appdata (this file is invisible unless you make it visible - go to control panel > folder options to do this) >.minecraft > saves  and then select the save you want. Copy it into your USB stick and simply copy it into that folder at your work. This only works if you have access to the appdata folder in your work's systems.

Or get that, and just copy your save file to whereever it's stored there.

Easy. Just go to your %appdata% folder, open roaming, .minecraft, saves, and copy the world you want to save.

The computers I use at work are made to handle catia and other such engineering programs, haven't had much lag. But then I haven't loaded any mods or texture packs at work. I figured the saving my world data to the drive and transferring it would work. But they might get upset if I keep saving stuff to the computer. That's why im thinking about putting the whole minecraft, jar, savedata, so on on the flash drive. Assuming that I could essentially put it all on there. there can you run Java from a flash drive? Oh, one problem might be that I have windows 7 at home, and windows XP at work

As for finding appdata,  it's easier to just goto the IE address bar, and type %appdata%

Yah it works i already do this with my world and mods so i can play at the library and at home and i have a backup if it gets deleted , just move your world your minecraft shortcut and any mods you may use. if you use a mod i would keep an spare Vanilla .minecraft folder so its faster to fix incase you mess up
If u need to contact me please pm me, chances are i won't return to a thread
