It is not completely clear if you mean large PC games or if you mean small PC games.
By small PC games I mean games similar to the games that come with Windows and that appear in the 'All Programs -> Games' folder. Such as 'Free Cell', 'Hearts' or 'Solitaire'.
By large games I mean games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Mortal Combat'.
Also, do you want to install the games on your Flashdrive or store them there?
If you want to store a large game on your flash drive. Place the CD/DVD with the game on it in your CD/DVD drive and insert your Flashdrive in a USB port.
Open 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. Locate the CD/DVD drive that you inserted the game disk in (most likely your D: drive).
In the 'Edit' menu select 'Select All' and then in the 'Edit' menu select 'Copy'.
Then locate the Flashdrive in 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. And in the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'.
While this will copy the files from your game's CD/DVD disk to your Flashdrive you may or may not be able to install the game from your Flashdrive.
You can use this same procedure to copy small games to your Flashdrive from your Hard Drive. You will need to know where on your hard drive they are located. And they may or may not run from your Flashdrive.
Also you may be able to install and run games from your Flashdrive, When you run the Setup program from you game disk you will usually be given the option to select a alternative location to install the game. Select your Flashdrive at that point and it may install correctly to your Flashdrive. If it does you should be careful to always use the same USB port or the game won't run.
exactly the same thing has happened to me before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.
Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;
Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira
anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you
will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software
download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was
download and click on the software to have it installed on your
After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or
completely installed on your computer, insert the flash drive into
the USB port of your computer.
The moment the flash drive
is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting
you about virus detected on the flash drive.
'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep
selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the flash drive and your flash drive will be okay.
You can format the flash drive thereafter or right click on the flash drive
from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.
should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not
solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step
You either have a failed hard drive or else a virus has corrupted the partition on the hard drive so it isnt found by windows. I am willing to bet that your hard drive had reached the end of its life. If this is the case you can get a new one and have your operating system re-installed by a friend or family member that is comfortable in doing so. Loading the operating system isnt that difficult with the correct CD's. If you have Vista or Windows 7 then most of the drivers will install automatically. If you have XP then that is a bit more involved as you will have to install most of the drivers that are required.
reboot while holding the option key down. It should show you available hard drives from which you can startup. Choose the drive and then press return or enter. Then restart. If nothing happens, turn off the laptop and insert your Mac OS disk and then reboot while holding down the C key. The computer will load the system on the disc instead of your hard drive. Then instead of reinstalling the system software, look at the top menu and find the Disk Utilities program and run a repair on your hard drive. Then reboot without the disk in the drive.
well the flash might be corrupted if u have pluged it recently on some mp3 player like those in the care that work on the radio signal, the electricity circulation in those mashines can broke ur flash drive.
if u want to make sure it is broken, u should go to administrative tools, and choose device managment, then disk managmen, if its note there, then its a 90% broken flash drive.
When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Try formatting using Disk manager. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.
Try the flash drive in another computer to see if it works.
If it doesn't work, format the flash drive, you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you want to recover the data on this flash drive, this program may help :- Digital Photo Recovery www.artplus.hr/adapps/eng/dpr.htm
