NOT RUN 4GB PEN DRIVE IN MY COMPUTER . OS : WINDOWS 98 PEN DRIVE MODEL : TS4GJF330 MAKERS : TRANSCEND


Windows 98 didn't have drives that large, they stopped at 540Mb. The software doesn't know what to do with it.
If there is a BIOS update for the motherboard, it may help to recognise it also drivers will be an issue with an OS of that age.

What is the best way to transfer data from my old computer to this one?


The most popular way to transfer files is to burn them to a cd. For this you would need a cd burner and a couple of blank cds. Not only are you moving the files but by burning them to a cd, you are also archiving them. You'll be thankful that you did when something goes wrong with your computer. If you have a cd burner that is compatible with cd-rw media, then you would be able to just use one cd to transfer. A cd-rw disk offers the option to erase the cd and then rewrite something else to it. Depending on the speed of your cd burner, this could be a quick or a timely process. It may be very repetitive if you have a lot of data to transfer An excellent way to transfer a couple of files from computer to computer is to transfer with a thumb drive. A thumb drive is a small hard drive that can hold anywhere between 16mb to 1 full gig. It is normally a plug and play device that you would plug into a USB port. It would show up as a removable drive in My Computer on Windows or if you a Mac user, it would show up on your desktop. If you have an older computer, you may have to install drivers for your USB ports or software for the device to be recognized. Please check your thumb drive manual for more information on the setup for different systems. If you're not afraid to open the computer up, you could just take your old hard drive and hook it up as a secondary or slave drive. This would allow you to transfer the files from hard drive to hard drive, within your computer. Before doing anything to your computer, please consult your computer manual
or an experienced computer professional . Never open your computer up while it is still plugged in.

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

Im plugging my flash drive into the usb and nothing is coming up. this one works in other computers but not this one


For starters, what is the operating system of this computer?
Windows XP will recognise flash drives, 2000 seems to recognise some but if you have 95, 98 or Me you need to install a driver for the drive. The manufacturer of the drive may not even supply one.

The Windows 98 system may have changed the drive letter of the thumb drive. In windows XP, open control panel - administrative tools. Then go into the removable drives option where you can change the drive letter. Change the thumb drive to a drive letter that does not conflict with another device on your system. Make sure your thumb drive is in the USB slot. Alternately, you can change the drive letter of the conflicting drive...

UNless you are using Windows 98 or Windows 95, a USB key will be detected as a hrad drive when connected to the system. You simply copy the files using MY Computer or Windows Explorer to the USB drive. When finished, the files are on the drive, and you can take them to another system.

You can also open the file, then use the SAVE AS function to select a different location (The USB drive) and copy the file that way.

If you are using windows 98, you'll need a software driver for Windows 98 to recognize a USB drive. The drivers are made by the USB drive manufacturer

How to transfer data/file to UBS devise


If the USB device is a hard drive or flash drive (a.k.a. thumb drive), when you plug it in you should see its light flash, and Windows should assign it a drive letter. If you open up My Computer, you will probably see the additional drive letter in the list. You should be able to save files to the drive's letter, or drag and drop files onto the drive letter, and the files will transfer to the device.
