Most flash drives are plug-n-play devices. Windows Vista should be able to handle this. Simply plug in your flash drive into an unused USB port. The computer will take less than a minute to recognize your device and assign a drive letter to it. Now it can be used as a removeable drive.

Hope that helped.

Back up all of your personal data and files. Store your backup on external media, such as an external hard drive, USB flash drive or CD/DVD.
  • Step 2 Insert your Windows Vista installation disk.
  • Step 3 Restart the computer.
  • Step 4 Re-configure your BIOS to boot from CD first if Windows Vista boots normally after inserting the installation disk and restarting. Find these settings in your BIOS "Boot" options.
  • Step 5 Press any key to enter the Windows Vista setup.
  • Step 6 Enter the license key, select your activation preferences and agree to the license agreement. Press "Next" after entering a value for each item.
  • Step 7 Choose a "Custom" installation.
  • Step 8 Click on your primary partition. This should be your "C:\" drive on Disk 0. Click "Next."

    Install flash drive


    What type of operating system you are using? If it is a Windows XP's or vista it is a "Plug and Play" i.e automatically detects the type of device that's been attached and, if needed, automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it.
    Windows "Plug and Play" plays very well with USB. Chances are installing your USB flash drive means simply plugging it in, and letting Windows do the rest. (It may ask you for your Windows installation CD to get drivers.) When done, you should find another drive letter on your machine that is the USB drive.
    To be clear, you should definitely review any documentation that came with your USB device.
    While flash drives and other "disk-like" devices tend to just work, manufacturers of other devices often have you install their software on your system before plugging the device in for the first time.
    So just check the materials that came with your new peripheral.

    Your taskbar should notified you that new hardware installed ". Click on that, select the device you wish to remove, and Windows will do things like flush the disk buffers and ensure that from the operating systems point of view it's safe to unplug it.

    The flash drive purchased doesnot work when pjugged into the usb port on my desk top but it work on my lap top? How do I get it to work on my desk top


    Hello claponte

    FIRST, THE HARDWARE SIDE:
    If you just purchased your flash drive, then it is using the USB 2.0 (high speed) standard. Prior to that were USB version 1.1 and, before that, USB 1.0 standards.

    USB 2.0 devices will still work when plugged into USB 1.1 ports - just at a reduced speed)

    However, computers w/ USB 1.0 ports cannot properly detect USB 2.0 devices. On those computers, you'd need to install a USB 2.0 expansion card in order to add USB 2.0 functionality to the computer.

    SECOND, THE SOFTWARE (DRIVERS) SIDE:
    On the software side, USB devices are "plug-and-play" on Windows XP & Vista systems. This means they do not require special drivers or installation for them to work properly. The drivers needed for them to operate are already built into the operating system.

    However on operating systems prior to Windows XP (Windows ME, Windows 98SE, Windows 98...) drivers are needed for USB devices to be detected properly.

    These are two possible reasons why your flash drives don't work on your desktop computer.
    (01) The computer is an older one using USB 1.0 technology
    (02) The operating system is pre-Windows XP

    Another possibility is (if your computer USB ports are at least 1.1 standard and your operating system is at least Windows XP) there is an issue w/ the USB ports on your desktop computer. This could be a hardware or a software issue still.

    Please, let us know if that's the case and we'll help you to trouble-shoot the issue.


    Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

    Thank you
