I am trying to transfer data from a very old computer using the Toshiba 1GB USB 2.0 flash drive and the old computer doesn't have the driver software to run it. What do I do? Can I download a driver from the net? Could you please help?

Your computer may be reserving space on the drive and using it to speed up your memory of your computer. Some have default settings that automatically do this. Try reformating the portable drive to erase the contents and settings and see if this recovers your available space.
Just plug the flash drive in and let your computer recognize it and offer to open the flash drive file up to view. Once it is loaded up then you can simply drag and drop into it. If this is the first time using the flash drive it may need to load some software. When a flash drive is being used a small icon should appear on the lower right.
There are various types of USB sticks or adapters. The most common is an USB memory stick and they come in memory capacities from 256Mb to 32Gb or more.
The USB memory sticks are use to transfer data from a computer to a memory stick and vice versa (ie. copy data from one computer to another computer).
To copy data to and from a USB memory stick, all you have to do is to plug the memory stick into the USB port of a computer, the computer will recognize it as an external memory device.
Wait a few seconds and click to open the memory stick, just like openning a folder on your hard disk. You can then open the hard disk and copy data files from the hard disk to the memory stick in the same way if you were copying data to a floppy disk.
my laptop does not read the usb stick, when i insert it, a pop up says usb device not recognized, and has malfunctioned. I am having this problem after using this usb device in a car stereo system. please advise i need to recover my data from the device. please help me in this issue.
