sorry for the confusion. :-) If we ever get to Adelaide I promise that I will explain it to you.
You will find your iTunes music file location somewhere in [preferences].
(Haven't got a windows PC here at moment to check)
I'm with Bill on the CD/DVD option - WAY safer to use than a memory stick, albeit not as convenient. Use the memory stick to keep another copy of your photos on you, so you can use them at work as a wallpaper etc...
A USB/firewire/eSata connected external drive (using RAID or not) is a (relatively) cheap and more reliable way to store a BACKUP of your precious data but, again, should never be used as the sole medium for data storage. Even if the disk(s) don't fail, the proprietary software/hardware solution will be difficult to recover if the box itself dies.
Most versions of Windows/MAC have some form of inbuilt software that will let you schedule regular backups and many external Desktop drive vendors (Western Digital, Seagate etc) bundle backup solutions with their products.
Another solution (for photos at least) is to use Flickr...
