How do I get started using a USB flash drive and how do I set up a security system?


hey, heres something that would help u:  Copying files to a flash drive on a PC:
  1. Open My Computer and see which drives are shown. Most computers, for example, have a hard disk such as a C: drive and a few removable storage devices such as a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, and perhaps a zip drive. 
  2. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and watch to see where the USB flash drive appears. Most will appear as removable storage, but some will instead appear as hard drives. Note the name Windows is using to refer to the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  3. Open My Documents or the location from which you want to transfer files to the flash drive. Select the files or folders you want to save to the flash drive by left-clicking on them. To select more than one, hold down the CTRL key while you click and select all of the files you wish to save. 
  4. Right-click on the file(s) or folder(s) you selected, then select Send to, then select the name you saw appearing in My Computer for the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  5. When the copying is finished, do not immediately remove the flash drive from the USB port. Instead, left-click on the Remove Hardware icon toolbar.gif located in the System Tray. A window containing a list of the USB devices will appear. Left-click on the Safely Remove Mass Storage Device line that matches your flash drive (for example, Safely Remove Mass Storage Device - Drive(G:)). 
  6. When you see the following message appear in the bottom left toolbar, it is, as it says, safe to remove the flash drive from the USB port; you may close the message or ignore it, as it will close itself automatically:

I just bought a UBS flash drive there where no instructions in the pacaging. I guess they assume everyone is savvy and knows how to use one. I don't! please I just want some easy to follow instructions. I...


UNless you are using Windows 98 or Windows 95, a USB key will be detected as a hrad drive when connected to the system. You simply copy the files using MY Computer or Windows Explorer to the USB drive. When finished, the files are on the drive, and you can take them to another system.

You can also open the file, then use the SAVE AS function to select a different location (The USB drive) and copy the file that way.

If you are using windows 98, you'll need a software driver for Windows 98 to recognize a USB drive. The drivers are made by the USB drive manufacturer

Trying to connect a SCSI zip drive to a Dell OptiPlex GX1 400MHz and want to install a new Segate Barr 40Gig thers only 1 bay


In order to use the SCSI zip drive, you'll need a Windows 98 driver for that drive. Go to the manufacturer's website to download the driver; if there isn't a Windows 98 driver available, that device may not be compatible with Windows 98.

I just bought a usb2.0 Flash Drive and I don't know how to use it in my computer what are guides to follow?


Just plug the drive into your USB port, Windows will detect it and install the software.
Open Windows Explorer and you will see it listed as a removable device. It will probably need to be formatted first, but Windows will advise if this is needed.
After that, you can use it like it was a hard drive, just copy and paste files to it.

Flash drive storage


Re-format it from Windows.
Go to my computer.
You will see all disks including removable flash drive.
Click right button on flash drive icon.
A menu will drop down chose format option.
Do not do fast format , chose a complete format.
If you cannot solve the problem in this way then the flash drive is either .
Some Chinese export companies are selling corrupt or counterfeit flash drives of 4, and 8 Gigs, they lose FAT integrity after a while, and when re-formated won't work properly or will work only for a while.
In this case return item to retailer.

Hard drive not working properly


What is the original OS? If it's XP you can't install 98 over the top of it without formatting it to FAT32 first.
