Yes in part. It is USB and it is a type of flash drive But it is specialised. Broadband ISP use them to allow you to connect online while travelling. You can use prepaid or a plan. VERIZON make them so have a look on the verizon site. It would be better for you if you want to have broadband wireless to contact your ISP so that the correct parameters are on the unit to connect to their service. If you have a home wireless system modem/router and are using a desktop computer that is not fitted with a wireless nework card you will need it to have one of these USB devices to connect to the home wireless modem router. they cost about $75

Hello

This Windows screen is telling you have to create a Wireless network not a wireless connection. I would have to know the brand and model to be more specific and whether or not a wireless card was originally installed.

1) Turn off your wireless router and unplug the external hard drive you want to make wireless.
2) Plug an Ethernet cable to the "Network-attached storage" device, and the other end of the cable to an available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
3) Connect one end of the USB cable to the wireless router's available USB port and the other end of the USB cable to your "External" hard drive.
4) Turn on the both the Wireless router and the External hard drive. Make sure that your Internet connection is still working.
5) Insert the installation CD and run it on your computer. Follow the installation instructions and install any utilities related to your external hard drive. There may be special utilities provided for flash drives that are not needed for hard drives.
6) Create a login name and security password for the "NAS" device during the setup process. When the installation process is completed, you will now be able to use your external hard drive.

Creating Bootable USB Flash Drive.


The USB Flash Drive must be configured with an active primary MS-DOS partition. It must also contain the boot files. Follow the steps below to create a bootable USB Flash Drive.
Requirements:
  • Motherboard with BIOS that supports USB boot.
  • USB Flash Drive that may be erased.
  • Bootable floppy disk or CD with Fdisk and Format commands.
Directions:
  1. Plug in the USB Flash Drive.
  2. Make the USB drive the only bootable hard drive. Method 1:
    If available, change the BIOS settings for the hard drive sequence, making sure the USB device is at the top of the list above all other hard drives. Not all BIOS Setup Utilities have this option. Method 2:
    Disable all hard drives in the BIOS. In some BIOS Setup Utilities you can disable the individual hard drives, while in others you will need to disable the controller. Method 3:
    Unplug all hard drive cables inside the case. If the cables are unplugged the computer cannot detect and boot to the hard drive.
  3. Insert the bootable floppy disk or CD into the appropriate drive.
  4. Restart the computer to the bootable floppy disk or CD.
  5. At the command prompt, type: FDisk.
  6. Delete and create a new active primary DOS partition.
  7. Use FDisk to delete all partitions from the USB Flash Drive.
    • In FDisk, press the 3 key to Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive.
    • If there is just one partition on the drive, choose 1 to delete the primary DOS partition. If there are several partitions, the extended and logical partitions must be deleted before the primary partition.
    • After choosing option 1, the screen appears with partition information and a prompt for the partition to delete. Choose which primary DOS partition to delete, and then press ENTER.
    • A prompt appears to enter the volume label of the hard drive. Enter the label exactly as it appears on the top of the screen in the partition information. If the volume label contains gibberish or lowercase letters, the partition will have to be deleted as a non-DOS partition. Try using the option to delete a non-DOS partition in FDISK. After entering the volume label, press ENTER.
    • You are prompted if it should delete the partition. Press Y for Yes, and then press ENTER.
    • The screen changes to show only the total disk space and a line near the bottom that prompts that the primary DOS partition has been deleted. Press the ESC key to return to the main menu.
  8. Use FDisk to create a primary partition on the USB Flash Drive. The drive letter will be C:, since all other hard drives were disabled in step 2.
    • In FDisk, press 1 to Create DOS partition or Logical DOS drive.
    • Press 1 to Create a Primary DOS Partition.
    • The next screen prompts if the maximum hard disk size should be made into one partition. Press the Y key, and then press ENTER.
    • The next screen prompts that the computer will now reboot. Press ENTER to continue.
  9. Exit FDisk and restart the computer.
  10. Start the computer from the bootable floppy disk or CD with the USB Flash Drive still connected.
  11. At the command prompt, run Format by typing the following command: Format c: /s. Press ENTER.
  12. At the command prompt, run FDisk by typing following command: Fdisk /mbr. Press ENTER.
  13. Restart the computer without the bootable floppy disk or CD, and attempt to boot to the USB Flash Drive. If it works, it should go to a C:\> command prompt.
  14. Change the settings made in step 2 back so that the computer operates normally again.

Missing drivers and can not download from internet without wireless. How can I get the cd drivers?


You are obviously using another internet connection as you were able to post this request. Use that internet connection and get a USB flash drive you can copy the driver to.

Then follow this link and download the driver to your USB flash drive, take it to your computer and install it.

Files going corrupt of unable to open


You are not allowing the USB write buffer to completely write to the flash drive.
Do not simply remove the flash drive from the USB port. You must use the "eject" or "safely remove" the device so that the write buffer has complety closed.

Insert the flas drive, notice the flash drive icon appears in the lower right of your desktop. You must use this icon to safely remove the flash drive. Try it now.
Left-click one time on the flash drive icon. It may be hidden behind the < symbol.
Click on "Safely remove USB ..." and a message will appear.
If it either say it is ok, or tell you to try later.

Thre may be more than one "Safely remove USB... " listed. One may be your DVD or mouse, etc.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


If I understand correctly ... You have not connected the drive to a computer.

If I am not mistaken the WD My Book has preinstalled backup software installed on it. It very well might also have a power down built as part of that programming. Try attaching it to a computer to verify this.

Assuming the backup software needs blank drive to work correctly I would first access the drive select all and delete anything you find (if you know how to unhide hidden files do that before you select and delete all) ... As a 2nd option I would just reformat the drive.

Hope that helps....
