Yes, you should make sure its plugged into the USB port. Then Open My Computer by double clicking on it.
Look for your Flash Drive and double click on it.
When it opens you can highlight what ever you want to move and right click on one of the highlighted icons and click cut.
Then go back to My Computer and click on "C" drive and go to Documents. Then open the documents and right click and paste . That will move the data.
Hope that helps. Bud

What does error codeBIOHD=8 mean


It means your PC thinks the hard drive is starting to fail (the S.M.A.R.T. system has indicated a failure is imminent). There are some other things that can cause this but I would highly recommend that you back up any important data onto another drive/flashdrive or CD/DVD in case it is failing.

MultiBoot USB Flash - Survival Guide


Grub4DOS is a boot manager
that can be easily installed to a USB flash.
It allows booting multiple operating systems
from a simple graphical user interface.

laikexpert_5.jpg

1.) Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystem. (Windows)
(
Download and start HPUSBFW.EXE )http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/HPUSBFW.EXE
-REMINDER!!! all data will be deleted on the USB flash-


1.a) Download necessary files
Grub4Doshttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/grub4dos-0.4.4.zip
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Grub4Dos%20gui%20Installer%201.1.rar

1.b) Extract the downloaded zip files into separate folders.
For example:
Grub4DOS to C:Grub4DOS
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1 to C:
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

2.)
If your flashdrive is not already plugged into the computer, plug it in now.

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

2.b) Run the grubinst_gui.exe program (Windows XP)
Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)

2.c) Once the program is started, select the Disk option,
then click the Disk Refresh button and then select
your flashdrive from the dropdown box.
IMPORTANT:If you accidentally select the wrong drive,
you may not be able to boot your system without doing a boot repair.

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.

Have photos and software on my i.t.flashdrive but now my laptop wont even find the flashdrive! is there any software i need to download?


No soft needed, it's a simple USB stick , the default driver is used for all. Try the stick in another pc, if it's the same then the memory chip inside it has failed and all the data on it is lost for good - junk it.

I have an iomega zip 100 disk that has lots its metal dust cover and i cannot retreve data from it. i tried another cover from another zip disk but it still does not read. I replaced the spring...


Iam sorry but it seems you may have lost the data. Because the Metal cover has nothing to do with the media being read by the drive. The metal cover is only there to protect the disc from environmental threats. So, my friend i think since it was sitting around with out the Metal sleeve. it may have gotten corrupt.
