Re: I don't know a thing about it.
When you insert the flash drive into a USB port, the system will (okay, should) recognize it as a "removable" drive. It will assign a drive letter to it, which you can treat as a regular hard drive.
So, plug it in, then open My Computer, and you should see it there. Save to it, delete from it, whatever you want. If your system is not recognizing it (XP and Vista should do so, automatically), then you may have a flash drive that requires a driver (typically, SanDisk units do not).

The first thing to do is determine the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/
If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva
Or if you need data recovery help this a good choice for low cost and fast data recovery. All data recovery work is performed remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask for donations if you are happy with the results: http://FreeDataRecovery.us
Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly. Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove. To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive. If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: - Data and Digital Photo Recovery www.artplus.hr/adapps/eng/dpr.htm www.CardRecovery.com
One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)
A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.
1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability
2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)
3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.
4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.
5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port 6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you don’t do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it. You should also do this to check the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section. 9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE. Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. Ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar. It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive. SPECIAL NOTES USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason. Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.
USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care. This is a real hard drive ! And knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.
Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear. Known as "The Click of Death" Hope this gives you the information you need
What did you mean that you how to unlocked the website to your School? Did you mean all the site is blocked? well simple go ahead and download U95.exe and then save it to your flash drive. From your flash drive connect that to the computer on your school and from there open and double click U95. There is internet explorer open.From there there you can open all the block site.
Double click the file you want to move. When the progam opens the document, Choose"Save As" from the File Menu. When the dialog box opens, navigate to you flash drive. Something like (E):Kingston the choose "Save" Now a copy of your file will be on your Kingston Flash drive.
