Open a command window at the source folder
try a DOS command like this,
long line may wrap
replace the [usb*] with the spec for your system,, filespec can be anything, *.jpg *.raw that your camera requires

for %f in (*.*) do if not exist [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]\%f copy %f [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]

or you can make a batch file to do the same thing as this is likely to be a repeated task

@echo off
cls
echo Copying New Files
for %%f in (*.*) do if not exist [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]\%%f copy %%f [usbdrive]:\[usbfolder]
echo New files Copied

    better batch file takes source & destination as arguments for multiple uses



    @echo off
    cls
    If not exist %1 goto error

    if not exist %2 goto error

    echo Copying New Files from %1 to %2
    cd %1

    for %%f in (*.*) do if not exist %1\%%f copy %%f %2

    echo New files Copied
    goto done

    :error

    echo Copy batch file requires two parameters

    echo %0 [source] [destination]

    :done





    I had nothing else to do

    Thought everyone has played with command prompts at some stage

    the command prompt is available from the right click menu in windows at most folders

    its a black boring window like the screen on a 1980s pc

    and you can use it as one

    if your USB pictures are in G:\PICTURES



    for %f in (*.*) do if not exist g:\pictures\%f copy %f g:\pictures



    will look at each file in the folder you start in one at a time, compare it with the folder you are aiming for, and only copy the file if it does not already exist.

How to open .zip file downloaded to usb flash drive


Very easy. Create a folder on the device you want to download to. If its a computer, create one on your screen, (desktop)if not great it where you want to.If its not a self unzipping file you will need to use an app that comes with your PC or APPLE plug in the USB, make sure windows recognizes it. Then go to "my computer", left click on the USB holding it down constantly. Drag it over to the folder you created on your desktop and release it. Next double click the folder to open it up. Click on the USB file to unzip. If it asks you were, use current folder. It will unzip as of it to that folder.

2.a) The next step is to run the Grub4DOS Installer.
Browse to the Installer's unzipped folder using Windows Explorer.

Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)

2.d) Now click the Part List Refresh button,
then the dropdown box and finally select the Whole disk (MBR) option

2.e) Click the Install button to install Grub4DOS to the MBR
of the flashdrive.
Hopefully, you'll get the message that the installation was successful.

3.) The next step is to copy the grldr file to the flashdrive's
root folder.Using Windows Explorer, browse to the folder
where you unzipped
the Grub4DOS program and copy the file to the flashdrive.

3.a) Grub4DOS is now installed on the flashdrive.

4.)Download file
menu.lsthttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/menu.lst

4.a)You need to copy the menu.lst file to USB Flash

4.b)Create a folder Boot on a USB flash drive.
in this folder create new folders
Splash
menus

4.c) Download file
Snaiyahttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Snaiya

4.d) On USB flash-open the folder Boot
Within-we see Splash folder. Copy the file Snaiya into it.


5.) Add Puppy Linux on a multiboot USB flash

laikexpert_0.png

5.a) Download the Puppy ISO imagehttp://www.puppylinux.org/

5.b) Create a folder Puppy on a USB flash drive.

5.c) Take from the downloaded ISO, file
PUP_420.SFS (from the folder Puppy)
Rename it to pup_420.sfs
and copy it to
USB flash.

5.d) Copy all other files from the downloaded ISO (from the folder Puppy)
to the folder /Boot/Puppy/ (Create a folder on a USB flash)

5.e) In the menu.lst add a:

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

5.f) Preserve the changes and now menu.lst looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/Splash/Snaiya
timeout 30
default 0

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

title Boot from CD-rom
cdrom --init
map --hook
chainloader (cd0)

title ShutDown PC
halt

title Reboot PC
reboot

5.g) Puppy on our MultibootUSB flash-is ready for operation.
(Now we can restart our computer and see how it looks and works)

Depending on the options your motherboard, it is necessary when starting
your computer keyboard press: F8 or F12 or Esc, etc..
Thus you will appear a menu where you choose your USB flash drive.

How to use my sms card


If you camera came with a cable that has a flat end (USB PORT) you can plug it into the computer and turn the camera on. The computer will recognize it and give you options to open the files on it. You can look through the camera files just like you would look through any disk files or usb flash drive files.

Once you find your camera pictures, I would suggest opening the MY Pictures folder on your computer. If you want all the camera pictures within one folder within the My Pictures folder, then first create a New Folder and give it a name. If you don't care and just want them spreaded all within the My Pictures folder then you don't need to create a folder within the My Pictures folder. You can drag and drop the pictures from the camera you want to the My Pictures or New Folder you created, or you can click Edit at the top of the camera window and select copy then go to the My Pictures or New Folder you created and click Edit at the top of it's window and select Paste.

If you want all the pictures from the camera, then you can select Edit at the top of the camera window and then SELECT ALL, then Edit followed by Copy, then go to the MY Pictures or the New Folder and click Edit then Paste.

How do I download all my stuff from my current computer to a new computer?


You can easily and safely use a USB pen drive with a large capacity to transfer all the files one by one , folder by folder with special markings to note the copy into the respective drives. You can also segregate the new drives to your need with personal files, general files and public files. Also picture and video downloads also can be listed and saved.Connect the USB to the old PC and transfer by copy or cut , then connect the usb after safe removal to the new PC and pasting to the new location.

I am assuming you are trying to download the song onto a USB Drive or USB Music Player so when you Download the song all operating systems are slightly different as are browsers so I am giving these instructions based on internet Explorer and Windows 7. Click to download then you will get a popup in the bottom of your internet window asking if you want to run or save or cancel. Next to the Save button is a small arrow click the arrow and move down the drop down list to SAVE AS and click on that a new windows browser window will open and you can sellect what to name the file you are downloading and where to save the file, on the left is a tree view of the files folders, ect on your PC if you scrol to and click on computer it will then list all the Main Drives ie: Hard drives cd/dvd rom drives and all removable media/Drives including your USB drive Click on that and click OPEN/SAVE if it was open then it will open and list anything already on that drive just click SAVE now to add your new file to the drive. Alternativly You can download onto your PC anywhere then open the File location and alongside that window in a new window open your USB drive to view the files Then just drag and drop or Copy and paste the desired files to the USB drive
Hope this Helps!!!

How to download in my pc?


1.

When you download a file-such as a program, update, game, video, or document-you transfer it from the Internet to your computer.

2.

When you download files using Download Manager, they're automatically saved in the Downloads folder. This folder is usually located on the drive where Windows is installed (for example, C:\users\your name\downloads). For information about managing your downloads and changing where they are saved, see Using Download Manager in Internet Explorer

If you're saving a file, you can choose to save it to a particular folder. If you don't select a folder yourself, some files are automatically saved to a folder associated with the file type. For example, if you right-click a picture on a web page, and then choose Save Picture As, it will be saved to the Pictures folder.

3.
Open Download Manager

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Internet Explorer.

  2. Click the Tools button getcontent.aspx?assetid=448ef968-d58a-43a2-b0cc-f396f4024f2c&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=us , and then click View downloads.

***************************************************************************

Right-click a file, and then click this

To do this

Delete File

Delete the file from the computer.

Copy download link

Copy the link you used to download the file. You can paste the link, and then save it or send it to someone else.

How do i download memory from 1 memory stick 2 another?


I'll presume you are referring to a 1 gb flash drive.
You can plug both flash drives into USB ports and just "drag and drop" from one to another.
If you have only 1 USB port available plug in the drive with the data. Create a folder on your desktop (Righ click on desktop, select NEW, Folder) and give it a name like "Flash backup"
Open the flash drive and highlight all the files and copy or move them to the newly created folder. Remove the flash drive and insert the drive you want to copy the data to and again highlight the data in the folder and copy it to the new flash drive
