    First let's determine it sees it. When you look in My Computer, does the Removable Disk icon appear? If you right click My Computer and choose Manage, then Disk Management, do you see anything listed there for it?

Just to clarify so you know what's going on... the U3 is a virtual cd player that will let you run programs from your flash drive. Removable Disk G is the storage part of your flash drive. 2 units, 1 piece. Pretty nifty. Thanks for letting me know it worked out for you.

    After you plug in your drive and it shows up in My Computer, click on the G drive. That window opens up and will most likely be either blank (because there is nothing in it) or have a folder or 2 being used by the drive itself. Now, anything you want to save in that drive can be copied from its present location to that G drive folder. You can do this a couple of different ways: right click and Copy what you want to save and then right click and Paste it in the G drive folder. You can also left or right click the folder(s) you want to save and while still holding down the mouse button, move the mouse arrow from the window that your folder is in and drag it to the window(G drive folder) you want to copy it to. When you release the mouse button, it will either automatically copy it or ask you if you want to copy or move it. This is known as drag and drop. If you have never done this before, practice with something you don't mind losing if you forget where they go! Let me know if you have more questions. I live to serve.
