If you can browse them, then the disk is working. Try and copy the word documents to your hardrive or My Documents folder, and then try and open them from there.

This is my first flash drive. How do I record to it? How do I play back from it?

Flash drives are used like floppy discs. Take off the cover, plug in the drive to a USB port and wait for the computer to acknowledge it. Usually it will get a drive letter assignment of E: unless you have multiple optical drives or a card reader that may have that drive letter in use. Transfer files by copying them in the file explorer. I like to have two windows open (one with the folder the file is starting in and the other the window for the contents of the flash drive).

Alternatively, open the file in the appropriate program and (for most OS versions) File > Save As and browse to the flash drive. Check the file name and click OK.

To use a file on any computer, open the file explorer and browse to the flash drive. Double click on the file and the associated program (or another that handles that file type) will open if it is on that computer. Then you can edit the file. If you are using a different computer, when you return to your main computer. Transfer the file back to the Documents (My Documents) or other folder in the File Explorer.

Make sure the USB port is active (try another if the flash drive doesn't work). Some USB ports can be disabled for power savings or security. On Windows the first is an Advanced Setting from the screen saver. The second is found in the device manager (Control Panel > System and Security > System for Win7).

I hope this helps.

I just bought a Sandisk Cruzer Micro, 8GB. My problem is that I'm rather computer illiterate. Can you tell me how to use this thing? Where to plug it in , etc. What do I do after its plugged in. I have...

1. Find a USB port on your computer usually it has a 3 pronged logo on it
2. plug it in, it will only fit in one way its a rectangle.
3. your computer if running on an operating system made after windows 98 will auto detect these jump or thumb drives.
4. you can browse to this new memory using my computer on a PC or by using finder on a MAC.
to copy files the easiest way i know to do so on both PCs and MACs is to select the files off of the source and drag and drop (or copy and paste them) to your new 8GB drive.
5. once you can see the files on the USB drive open them so you know the file is there and not a short cut.

You should strongly consider buying a second back up like an external had drive. you should have 2 back-ups of critical files.

-good luck-

If you have the gate on the floppy disk (do not confuse with the hole on the left side) open and it still writes to the disk then you have a problem I haven't had to deal with in 15 years. If it used to work and now doesn't then its the drive. There is a metal arm that "detects" the open gate, could be it isn't free to more or the spring is missing or damaged. If its never worked some PC BIOSs allow you to modify the locking mechanism. This could also be caused by a damaged or intentionally modified floppy drive cable. Back when software was distributed on floppies people who had to duplicate disks would disable the write protect feature. This allowed them to write on protected disks without having to go thought the timely process of setting the protection off to write then back on to send to users.
