Step by step how to use your usb flash drive?


Steps for connecting your USB Flash Drive

Step 1: Take off the cap and insert your flash key into the USB port. The USB port is usually located on your CPU tower (just below where you insert your floppy disk or CD. There will be a symbol that looks like a 'sideways cactus.' See picture.

Note : Some computers will have the USB port located on the back of the CPU Tower.

Step 2: Next, you can double-click on "My Computer" on your desktop or hold down the "Flag" key and the letter "E" at the same time (the "flag" key is located between the Ctrl and Alt keys on your keyboard, see picture). This will open up "My Computer".

Step 3: Once you open up "My Computer" to open your flash key, you will need to double-click on it, which at your home computer will either be the E:, F:, or G: drive.

Note:
The reason for why the drive letter might differ, is that your flash key is a "removable" storage so it assigns the next available drive letter. Also, once you insert your flash key in again, the F: drive will change its name to PKBACK, or Removable Disk, or even to the brand name of the flash key such as "Kingston".

Steps for disconnecting your USB Flash Key


Step 1: Make sure that you have saved the documents you have been working on and then close them by clicking on the big red X in the upper right-hand corner.

Step 2: Once everything is closed, click once on the little green arrow at the bottom right of the task bar (see picture).
brymz_4.jpg

A message in a box will appear saying "Safely Remove Hardware", or "Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device". Click once on that message.

Step 3: It should now be safe for you to take out your Flash key.


Note : If you want to be certain it is safe, go into "my computer" and check to make sure that the "removable disk" and drive letter your flash key was assigned have disappeared.


Note: If the green arrow still appears, click on it again and it should disappear. If a message appears saying "The device 'Generic Volume' cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device later", you will want to make sure that all of your programs or documents on your flash key are closed out.

If you re-try it and the message still appears, push Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and then shutdown your computer. You can then take out your flash key or you can re-boot the computer and follow the same process above. You should then be able to remove it safely.

Flash drives are a very useful storage device because of their reliability and memory capacity. Learning how to use them may take a little experience, but once understood the flash drive can assist you in many ways with not only your data files, but using software that the host computer does not have. Also remember that a flash key is not indestructible, so you will want to use more than one physical location to store your data, such as your computer's hard drive, etc.

Hello marieborja10,
This happens some times when a program is accessing something on the drive. Make sure all files that were opened are closed. Also, make sure any open folders are closed.
If it still fails to eject, it is perfectly safe to pull the USB connector out as long as all programs/files/folders are closed.
Hope this helps!

When trying to eject my usb flash drive, I get a message-- the device "generic volume" cannot be stopped now, try later . This has been locked up for about 2 hrs. now.


This happens when a program is still writing data to the USB when you are trying to unload it from your PC. Dont pull the stick out where possible, as this risks losing data. (Though most times it's fine in my opinion)

Generally, most people close off the programs that are no longer using the USB before they unload it but certain programs 'link' together. For example, depsite you closing the MS Word document after saving it to USB, MS Word is also directly 'linked' to MS Outlook. If your outlook is still running, this may affect it. Try closing ALL programs (where possible) and ejecting the volume.

Alternatively, download a program called "unlocker"

http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/old/unlocker1.8.6.exe

This will load a popup into the menu that shows when you right click the drive from 'computer' Just click the 'unlocker' command and the drive should eject normally.

Good luck!

As long as the activity light is not on/flashing and all programs using the drive are closed, it is OK to unplug the drive. If you want to be on the safe side, turn off the computer, then unplug the hard drive.

You have to close all open files on that drive first - the drive cannot be stopped when there are files open on it.
Try closing all the applications that use files from that disk, and also any windows in which you see the contents of the drive.
Then try safe removal again.

Make sure you have all programs and folders closed. Then try stopping usb mass storage, there should be more then one option so try removing the drive itself on the list. If that doesn't work. I myself would probably just restart the computer. Then try again.

Problem ejecting my fujitsu external drive even all programs has been closed, even if the laptop has already been restarted. how to eject safely without damaging the external hard drive?


With USB devices you can go down to the clock section of the task bar and click on the << symbol to expand it. Pass the mouse over the icons and find the one that says USB devices. Open the service and select the drive you want to remove. Then choose stop service and it should shut down the drive and give a message saying it is safe to remove the device. Good Luck
