Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just bought a UBS flash drive there where no instructions in the pacaging. I guess they assume everyone is savvy and knows how to use one. I don't! please I just want some easy to follow instructions. I need to get information from my lap top to my main computer so I can print it out. Thank you so much for your kindness in this matter.

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

I just bought one but I don't know how to use it.

Well I guess first off, what model is it? Are you simply making copies of something? Uploading photos from your camera to print? A bit of clarification will help quite a bit.

It keeps tellin me no bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key... i also dont have a disk drive all i have is a ubs flash drive spot

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I am a student in school, and I am not to computer savvy on Flash drive.. It did not come with any instructions on how to use it. It is a Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive (4GB) Can you help me with step-by-step...

  • Boot up your computer and find an open USB port. These are small, rectangular ports typically on the sides or backs of laptop computers, or on the fronts or backs of desktop towers.

  • Plug your flash drive into the USB port. The drive will slide in only if it is turned in the right direction, so if you have trouble inserting it, turn it over.

  • Make sure your computer sees the flash drive. It should launch a menu, letting you know that it has found a new storage device. You can choose an option from the menu or close the menu if you don't need to immediately access the flash drive.

  • Install the flash drive's driver if your computer doesn't recognize the flash drive. The flash drive's packaging should include the manufacturer's website address. Open your Internet browser, go to that address, and download the flash drive's driver from the site. Install the driver on your computer. After that, your computer should be able to recognize your drive.

    I don,t know how to copy files on a scan disc

    Open Windows Explorer, assuming you're running Windows, and the flash drive should show up with a drive letter, e.g. as E:\ (Doesn't matter what letter.) Copy or drag the files or folders you want to move from this drive to your hard drive, assuming that's where you want them.
    It's a good idea not to use Cut and Paste when doing this so the original still exists on the flash drive in case of problems.
    Once you've copied what you want from your flash drive, you can reformat it if you wish. Click on Safely Remove Hardware before removing your flash drive from the USB port.

    Flash drive is not showing or responding when plugged into the UBS port

    how many drive letter you have on your system?
    make sure your drive is inside the usb port. I assume you are running windows system. Right click on my computer, click manage, then click disk management. Can you see your flash drive there, right click over it and assign a drive letter and thats it, you should see it.
    disconnect any f drives which you have by simply right clicking and disconnect, your flash drive should show you right away.
    Install any drivers which came with the drive and you should see it.

    Hope that helped!
