Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, i have a laptop that is a windows VISTA. when i click on the "start" icon on the lower left side of the screen, i click on "DOCUMENTS". When i get into that section i have 2 folders: Shared-LIMEWIRE-Files & BACKUP-LIMEWIRE-Files in these 2 folders are my video+song files that i downloaded off of Limewire. Now, my question is, i very much want to save these 2 folders with ALL OF MY VIDEO+SONG files that i have in them, but i don't know at all how to use the usb memory stick. I was told that by saving these 2 folders of mine with my video+song files in them onto a memory stick is a good idea, in case something goes wrong with my computer, in any way. Could you PLEASE email me with clear and EASY step-by-step instructions on how to: 1. save these 2 folders that contain my video+song files onto a memory stick & 2. once they are on a memory stick, how do i open these 2 folders on the computer and add on more files on the memory stick and save them again is there any way you can please email me this information (and in very easy steps in plain english) to me AND would i also be able to email you back if i still need help / clarifications?
Hi, since your so fond of downloading videos and music i suggest you get an external drive to save all this goodies....Videos and music take a lot of space and a memory stick won't be enough to store all of these....a memory stick is only good for files you always carry with you around while an external drive seats beside your computer act as a storage for all your videos, music, movies, photos, etc....it can store hundreds or even thousands of your files.....the more storage space the more expensive though(and that goes the same way for the memory stick but you get more bang for a buck for the external drive)......
Good Luck, Let me know what you decide and i will get back to you!!! Cheers

Using a pen drive is not a tough job
just plug it in to the usb port and wait for a few seconds
*you will see a baloon tip saying found new hardware
*wait untill it says device installion complete
*reboot if neccessary
now go to my computer
*you will see a new drive in it(it is your usb pen drive)
*double click to open it
you can acces it like your normal hard drive partiitions
if you want to copy something to your pen drive then
*right click on the file or folder
*select the option "send to"
*your pen drive will be listed in it
*click on the name of your pen drive
*wait for copying to finish
after that go to my computer open the pen drive and see if the file is copied
you can also delete the files in your pen drive
*select the file
*press delete in the keyboard
files deleted from pen drives dont reach recycle bin

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
