In almost all cases, if you are using a standard version of Windows, it should go like this:
1 - insert the jump drive (thumb drive)
2 - wait for the bells of recognition - bad news if there is no tone announcing the connection!
3 - once recognized, your Windows should open a small window which asks you exactly how you want to work with the thumb drive. One of the options might be to use it as an Explorer type of window for copying files, etc.
4 - select that type of use, and you should be able to copy files back and forth, as you would from any other drive to your C or D drive, etc.

I am trying to get a video off of my Archos device and onto my computer to burn it onto a CD how do I get it off?

Download ES File Explorer from the app store, link your Google Drive and upload your video. You can now download using any computer by downloading from your Google Drive account. Your video may be in a directory called /sdcard/video/ or /sdcard/media/.

Hi, I am interested in purchasing the onis 2.3 dicom system for our vascular lab. I have ordered the 30 day trial offer which is working great with my phillips 11 xe US system. I downloaded the onis...

Yes, you will need to install the DICOM viewer on the other computer. Instead of pasting the shortcut, you would have better luck copying the .exe file to the thumb drive to do the install on the other computer especially if that other computer does not have internet access.
You should be allowed to run the program on a trial basis on each workstation.

How can i connect a lexmark 4600 to a notebook that runs on xp but doesnt have a disk drive to load software

John - the easiest way is to download the needed software and install it. If your notebook is not connected get access to another PC, download the software (or copy it from that PCs optical drive) and put it on a USB thumb drive and plug it into the notebook to install. If you don't have a thumb drive you can get one almost anywhere now, supermarkets, chain drug stores, etc.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

You need to download them to your computer first. Just create a folder on your desktop and drag and drop the pics into it. Then, you can drag and drop them onto your thumb drive.

Is there any way to transfer the info on 1 usb to another

Yes, if your computer has two or more usb ports available. Plug each individual usb thumb drive into its own usb port. Open up explorer and verify which usb drive has the information on it and then copy all of the information (select all & copy) now drag and drop to the other usb port that contains the thumb drive you want to put the info onto. Each usb port will identify itself with a seperate drive letter.

You can also cut and paste instead of drag and drop.

No disk drive in computer

If you use a memory card, you don't need the disc. Just use a card reader to download the pics. If you absolutely want to load the disc, you could use a friend's computer to open the disc and copy it to a thumb drive and then use that to load it onto your computer.

Go to this website on a computer where you can download the drivers. Copy the downloaded file onto a USB drive (thumb drive) and then install the driver from the USB drive onto your laptop before you insert the wireless adapter card into the laptop. After the driver installation is complete, then install the card into your laptop and it should be recognized and after a couple of minutes,should be ready to go.

IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.

2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".

3. Reformat the drive as FAT32

4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.

5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.

Verbatim Thumb Drive problem

You may need to log on to the computer with administrative privileges. Ask your friend to log you into the Administrators account, then insert the drive.
