Some windows copies have this problem, Normaly the windows install drivers for the usb memory stick, you don't feel it, you see only that it is working correctly, so in this case, try finding a driver for your memory stick (no. or brand) by searching on the internet, and it works.

I have a gateway LT4004u laptop computer. I tried to restore it to the factory installation but didn't save all files first. Now when I try to start it up it says windows can't install on this...


You need to reinstall Windows on your laptop.
Use a computer that has a CD drive and copy the Windows installation CD to an USB memory stick.
To install Windows plug this memory stick with the Windows installation files into the USB port of your laptop then boot up your laptop and install Windows.

I want to transfer pictures from my toshiba laptop to a memory stick can you help please thank you


Insert your memory stick to your laptop, if your laptop has a memory stick slot or in the USB slot (if it is supported). If it doesn't have on you need a memory stick card reader. Insert your memory stick on a card reader then insert the card reader into the USB slot.

After that your laptop will prompt you and choose "view folder".

Now go to the folder where your pictures is located and choose the pictures you want to transfer and then right click on it and click "copy".

Go back to the folder of your memory stick, right click and then click "paste".

That should do it.

Thanks for using fixya!

Update me if you still have questions and let me know how I helped you.

Copying files over to Laptop


It's possible to get Windows 98 to recognize the USB memory stick, but there will be several technical problems to deal with.

A much simpler way may be to remove the hard drive from the tower and connect it directly to the laptop with an external USB-to-IDE adapter. In this configuration your files can be copied directly from the old hard drive to the laptop. Depending on your comfort level with working on the internal parts of your computer, you may need assistance from someone with computer service experience to do this. One example of the device you need is the "Bytecc BT-200 USB to IDE Cable with Power Adapter"....or you can search online to find this or similar devices by using the search terms USB - Hard Drive - External - IDE - Adapter. They are generally available for under $20.
