It may not be a problem with your flash drive but possibly a problem with the privileges of your account on that particular computer. Be sure that the computer you are having problems saving from you are logged in as a full administrator not just a power user or a user. second check on the sharing settings on the flash drive, typically these should not be set but there might have been something mistakenly set disallowing you access to save to it.

secondly, is there any software that is built in to the flash drive? some flash drives when you first use them they already have some files and programs that will pop up as you use it and some of them are lock down software that may be also denying you writing privileges.

I just installed my new Prestige 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive and when I try to save a file, I get the message that I don't have permission to save in this site.

You need to set up the hard drive so that your user name has full permission to use the entire drive. This problem is most often found in MAC computers. But either way, installing the software for the hard drive on the computer should help resolve this problem.

This is the about page of Microsoft Office 2007 (Microsoft® Office Word 2007 (12.0.6212.1000) SP1 MSO (12.0.6213.1000)) I?ve used your codes and countless others and none seem to work. I am working...

If you installed Office 2007, it configures itself as the program to be used to "open" any 'DOC' files.

If Word 2000 is still installed, start it.
Then, use 'File' and 'Open' to select & read your file from your USB flash-drive.

How do I save a document on memory stick.I use a micro soft 2007

When you plug you USB device (called a pen, a stick, etc), if you pay attention, XP or Vista makes a sound telling you it's recognized an external device and is making it availabe to you. Further, there should be a brief showing of a message, near the system tray (lower right corner of your desktop) telling you the same thing. In most cases, if the device contains files or pictures, a dialog window pops up asking you what you wish to do with these files, and prompts you for a default action, so that you don't have to be asked again.
If you look at your disk drives using Windows Explorer, the one you use to look through your directories and files, you will see a new drive that was not there before you plugged the USB device in. It acts as a hard drive, except that it may have limited storage.
In MS Office 2007, instead of using "Save", try "Save As..." and then you'll be presented with the familiar small window showing you the drives and folders on your PC or laptop.
Navitate to the USB device (say, drive "E", or what have you), and save the file there. Optionally, you may also create directories and subdirectories on the USB drive, to organize multiple files, if that is your intention.
Good luck!

Will not let me save a file and reads file permission error

I think for some reason there is a limit to the number of files (nb: number of files not amount of space used) that the root directory can handle. Try making folders and moving files into these to cut down on the number of root directory entries.

File permission error when saving in Word 2007

This error occurs when you are in a domain, and the files came from other users.

What you can do is right click a folder or a file > properties

look for the security tab then, add everyone on the list. And make sure that you check full on the permissions.

you can get back to me if this doesn't work.
