My desktop & laptop computers recognise the USB drive but I can't transfer files to it. I have tried both the drag & drop and the copy and paste but keep getting a message saying can't copy, drive full or corrputed. This is a new USB which contains U3 software.
Can anyone advise please.

Just plug your USB flash drive into the USB port of your computer or other USB-equipped device and drag the files you want to take with you into the folder that appears on your screen. Your files are instantly transferred to your USB flash drive. To transfer the items on your USB flash drive onto another computer, simply plug your USB flash drive into the computer that you want the files transferred to, open the folder that appears on your screen, and drag the desired files onto the computer's desktop.
1.) Insert Flash Drive into the USB Port of your computer.
-Where is my USB port? It is usually found in newer model computers in a hidden compartment on the front of the hard drive and in the back of the hard drive on older computers. The port for laptops is found on the side or back of the computer.
2.) Wait for the hardware to automatically install on your computer.
After the hardware is installed, it is ready to use!
3.) In most cases, an Options Window will automatically open. Select "Open folder to view files" Click "OK."
Assuming you are using a Windows operating system, you can just plug it into your computer's USB ports, and the computer will recognise it as another hard drive.
Instructions: Double-click on 'My Computer' and take note of what drive letters are there (C:, D:, etc.) before you plug in the Seagate Freeagent. Plug in the Seagate Freeagent. You'll see the new drive, likely E: or F: (depending on what is already there before you plugged in the Seagate Freeagent) Double-click on the new drive, and it'll open up and you'll see the files stored on that drive. You can drag and drop files and save to this drive like any other folder on your computer.

You should use a flash drive just like a floppy disc (if all you do with it is transfer files). Insert the USB stick into a USB port; watch for a message about found new hardware and then ready to use. Either drag and drop the file from hard disc to the USB stick (depending on your system it could be drive E:) in the File Explorer (in Windows use a right click to ensure a copy file, not a move file) or File > Save As and change the default location in PowerPoint. When done with the file transfer, click on Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media in the System Tray or Eject in the Explorer (My Computer).
Hi I am Vortash if the hard drive you are downloading to is in a usb carrier , then all you have to do is drag the files you want to an open window for the hard drive you are down loading to .. example ..
Connect external Hard Drive to USB .
wait for computer to recognise drive .
when the window comes up on how to open drive select the files option and the drives window will open .
select My computer .
select C:\ from my computer
Click click on the files youwant and drag to the open external drive window .
This will then copy all files you have moved to your external drive ..
To copy the whole of your drive just drag C:\ to the external window and all files will be downloaded ... hope this helps regards Vortash
If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you just need to plug it into a free USB port on your laptop or desktop computer. The OS will automatically find the hardware, then install it. A popup will show up asking what you want to do. You can select there open the folder to open up the contents of the drive. Otherwise you can just close this up and just goto MY COMPUTER and access the USB stick from there.
The USB drive should be ready to receive data, you can actually drag or drop files into it or copy paste the items into the drive. Or if you are making documents or spreadsheets you can directly use the drive to save files.
It's very easy, you should try it out once you're in front of your computer.
