Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
When I open a document and want to save it to my usb drive there is no drive letter to send it to. If I run G: the drive will open but I cant copy to it.
While USB drives are 'hot-pluggable' Windows doesn't always do what is advertised (i.e. Plug and PRAY). Try leaving the drive plugged in and rebooting the PC, it may find it that way and install a fresh driver for it.

Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.
Wait for Windows to recognize the system.
Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.
Open the drive on your computer.
Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using
Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.
Transfer files to the flash drive.
Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.
Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.
Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.
Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."
Close the windows and directory locations when finished.
Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.
Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.
Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.
Close the windows and files when finished
hope this helps
