USB thumb drives give you the ability to mobilize information, but they also have the power to act as a boot disk for both Windows and Mac computers. If you have a bootable thumb drive that you want to boot your computer from, you can easily set it up in the BIOS menu of your Windows computer or through the boot menu in Mac's OSX.

Plug your USB thumb drive into the computer. Boot the computer and follow the on-screen prompt to enter the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) menu. You should "Press a certain key Usually the DEL or the F2 key to enter BIOS setup" or something similar when you turn your computer on. Follow the directions to enter the BIOS menu. Scroll over to the "Boot" menu in the BIOS screen. Change the primary boot device to USB port or something similar depending on your BIOS menu. Restart the computer with the USB thumb drive in the USB port. b> Mac b> Plug your USB drive into your Mac's USB port. Turn on the computer while holding down the "Option" button on your keyboard. Wait for the boot menu to appear with all of your bootable devices shown. Use the mouse to select your USB thumb drive from the boot menu. Wait for the computer to boot using your thumb drive. Hope this helps.

Unformat floppydisk emulator


Floppy emulator can't read flashdisk untill it formatted.
Flashdisk MUST BE format by special softwares.
Install the softwares on the PC/notebook.
No matter how much flashdisk capacity,floppy emulator will continue to read as one 1.44MB floppy.
Through special softwares formater, we can determine how many floppy that we will create. Lets say,100 floppy (or more),softwares will format the floppy 1.44 100 times on the flashdisk.
So we have 100 pieces 1.44MB floppy inside flashdisk. If one floppy can store about 30 MIDI songs,then it means that we already have 3000 songs in flashdisk.
If you format for 100 floppy,the total capacity of about 144MB.
So,flashdisk with a 2GB capacity, is more than enough to store songs.
To change from one floppy to enother,just press bank number at floppy emulator panel.
I hope this helps.
Regards.

My pendrive file system change to raw & I don't want to format it because have very2 important data inside.


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

This sometime can be happened if you remove your flashdisk without safely remove it first from Windows. You can still recover the files inside your flashdisk. There's a lot program can do that, but I usually use Partition Find and Mount.

Download it from here:
http://findandmount.com/fnmsetup.exe

The instruction are here:

I hope this can help you.

Hi,
Easy! there are many ways you could tansfer files from one computer to another.
  • The easiest way would be via usb of the desktop to your new Lenovos usb.

  • Use a flashdisk, by copying the files from desktop to your usb connected flashdisk and connect the flashdisk to Lenovo's usb.

  • Try to copy/burn the files from desktop and download the copied files to your Lenovo.

Hope that clears up everything!
Thanks for using Fixya!
