On Excel 7, before remoing the usb (removable stick. what are the steps


It's always a good practice to safely remove your USB flash drive before unplugging it from your computer. This prevents data loss and extends the life of your external storage device. Removing a flash drive from your computer is very easy and doesn't take a long time to do.

Close all files you accessed from the flash drive. This is necessary for the device to be removed properly. Don't forget to save your files before closing the files. Right-click the "USB" icon marked with a checkmark. It is located on the bottom right of your taskbar. From the pop-up menu, click "Safely Remove Hardware." A small window will be displayed. Select the USB flash drive you want to unplug then click the "Stop" button. A confirmation window will appear. Click the appropriate hardware device, then click "OK." The "Safe to Remove Hardware" window will inform you that it's now safe to unplug the USB flash drive from your computer. Click "OK," then click "Close."

How to use toshiba flash drive 2.0


Follow these steps :
1.1
Plug the flash drive into one of your computer's available USB ports.

Look for the "Found New Hardware" balloon to pop up in your system tray. When the installation is complete, you can either click the balloon or go to "My Computer" and double-click the flash drive to open it.
3.3
Open the folder containing the data you want to store on the flash drive. Either copy the files and paste them into the flash drive's folder, or drag and drop.
4.4
Click the "safely remove hardware" icon. This is an icon with a green arrow in the system tray in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. When you click it you will see a message that reads "Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device." Click that message box.
5.5
If your flash drive has a light, it will turn off when the drive can be removed. Otherwise, it is safe to remove the drive when the message box goes away. Remove the drive.

How to transfer files from my old HP Pavilion 8650C to Dell computer or seagate external hard drive?


With the drive plugged in, open My Computer. You should see an icon labeled something or another that relates to your external hard drive. If you cannot determine which it is, unplug the hard drive. One of the icons should vanish. When you plug it back in, open the drive that appears. In order to transfer files, simply find the ones which you wish to move on your computer (most likely in the My Documents folder), then copy and paste them into the hard drive. Tell me if you have any more issues, and vote if this helped!

USB Pen Drive


In win 98 eject pen drive before unpluging it.

In later windows use icon near clock ( bottom right of screen ) and stop mass storage device before unpluging it.

That should solve problem.

I recently purchased a Dell XPS 420 Desktop computer, running Vista, from Dell, including a WD 500GB MyBook external hard drive. The power button did not function from the get-go, but I was able to copy...


Unfortunately if there is no driver for Vista, then your out of luck. Since Vista is a widely used OS and getting bigger, then the MyBook manufactures must create a Vista driver soon or they will be in danger of going out of business. Just wait and periodically check the MyBook website for new drivers.
