Question about Memory Cards & USB Flash Drives
I'm having trouble with my Imation 1GB USB device.
Firstly I think there is a virus on the key - any idea how I get rid of it?
Secondly, when I work on say a word document on my Laptop (which has Microsoft 2007) and save to my key then insert the key into my PC (which uses Microsoft 2003) it won't let me access that document or any files I have on the key. Any ideas?
