I hope someone has helped you by now! After you plug your flash drive into your computer USB 2 port, your flash drive should appear in "my computer" as a drive. You can rename that drive by clicking once on the drive and then right clicking your mouse and selecting "rename" and name it Your USB or something that reminds you its the USB Drive.
Whether you rename it or not, all you have to do once your computer has recognized the USB drive is to open the folder where your documents are kept and either "move" or "copy" them to the USB drive. Remember that "moving" the files will remove them from your computer and transfer them to the USB drive. Copying the files will leave a copy on your computer as it copies the file to your USB drive. You can also right click the file with your mouse and move the pointer over "Send To" and choose your USB drive from the list and it will Copy the file to your USB drive.

The USB flash drive is capable of storing any type of file. Save it as a word document (.doc) or anything else. However, if you use the drive on a computer that does not have WORD on it, you may not be able to open it. There are other programs that can read WORD documents: Libre Office, Corel WordPerfect and many other documents viewers.
Flash drives are used like floppy discs. Take off the cover, plug in the drive to a USB port and wait for the computer to acknowledge it. Usually it will get a drive letter assignment of E: unless you have multiple optical drives or a card reader that may have that drive letter in use. Transfer files by copying them in the file explorer. I like to have two windows open (one with the folder the file is starting in and the other the window for the contents of the flash drive).
Alternatively, open the file in the appropriate program and (for most OS versions) File > Save As and browse to the flash drive. Check the file name and click OK.
To use a file on any computer, open the file explorer and browse to the flash drive. Double click on the file and the associated program (or another that handles that file type) will open if it is on that computer. Then you can edit the file. If you are using a different computer, when you return to your main computer. Transfer the file back to the Documents (My Documents) or other folder in the File Explorer.
Make sure the USB port is active (try another if the flash drive doesn't work). Some USB ports can be disabled for power savings or security. On Windows the first is an Advanced Setting from the screen saver. The second is found in the device manager (Control Panel > System and Security > System for Win7).
most zip drives come with the software drivers needed to open and read anything stored on them if after plugging it into a usb port you do not get a conformation chime that something has been hooked up and than another prompt asking how you would like to view the files your usb port of choice is most likely the issue so I would suggest trying another port

It is simple. You insert it into a usb 2.0 port on your computer. Windows will recognize it and it will show in the My computer window. You click on the icon for the drive and you can explore what is in it.
If you have files (documents, pictures, etc.) you select them, right click mouse button to copy them ( CTRL C) then you open the Cruzer and you right click inside the drive window ( CTRL V) and click Paste.
.2. You can open 2 windows side by side, one for the folder that contains the file to be transferred, the other for the Cruzer. You will have to reduce the sizes of the windows. Then You click on the file to be transferred and maintain the click. After that you drag the mouse cursor and drop it in the Cruzer window. (That is called Drag and Drop)
I think the problem is corrosion on the contacts. Shut the computer off. Gently insert and remove the USB drive several times to try and clean the contacts. Turn the computer ON and when Windows has set up properly, insert the USB drive and see if you can read it. Many of the new drives and reader ports do not use gold contacts (too expensive) but use copper or aluminium which corrode easier an easiest.
Found these two solutions online, that worked for others. Hope it helps: BEFORE YOU DO EITHER OF THESE: Copy all the data on the microSD card to a reliable media.
First manually create a folder on the microSD drive. Move files/folders from the root into this folder. Apparently you can only have a limited number of files in the root directory of this and similar solid state memory devices, including SD cards, USB Flash drives, etc.
==========Solution #2============== Some suggest that if the drive is formatted with the NTFS file system that you should reformat the drive to the FAT32 file system. I would do this only if Solution #1 does not work or the problem reoccurs.
(1) Open Windows Explorer, right click the drive and select Format from the menu. (2) In the Format dialog, select the drop down menu in 'File System' and select the FAT32 option. (3) Click the [Start] button. (4) Exit the format dialog once complete.
(5) Restore your documents
