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."
The memory stick becomes another drive, when plugged into the USB port. Some sticks have a write protect, which is a teeny tiny switch. If the switch is in the protect position, you can read but not write any data to the drive. Often the drive will be listed after all of your camera card ports.
To view the drive press and hold the Windows key and press the letter E. and then release both. The available drives should show up there.
try installing the flash drive once through add new hardware wizard from control panel. it might fix the problem for you. also plug the device directly into the usb slot present in the backside of the computer.
It doesn't matter to which USB port you connect the flash stick. It should appear as an additional disk in My Computer, with a total capacity close to the rated one. To identify which drive letter is it, observe the open My Computer window and plug (or unplug) the stick - it will be the drive that appears (or disappears respectively) from the screen.
How to use it? I prefer not to use any special backup software, which I find not very intuitive. I just make folders that make sense for me, and copy the files (that I want to back up or transfer to some other location) to these folders.
First connect your flash drive to computer usb port. Then open my computer you find your flash drive as removable storage. Then open it and minimize. Then select files which you want to copy then copy and then again maximize flash drive then paste files there. Let me know if you need more assistance. Thanks.
1. Plug your flash drive into a USB port on your computer. 2. If you use Windows, the flash drive will appear as an icon in the "My Computer" window, with a caption along the lines of "Removable Device" or "Flash Drive". Note: Please wait the first time you plug it in - Windows needs to "discover" the flash drive, and will essentially set itself up to recognize the device so that it's usable. If you use a Mac, the flash drive's icon will appear on your desktop with similar captioning mentioned above. 3. You can double-click on the icon to open the flash drive and see its contents. You can drag files from anywhere into that window, or over the flash drive's icon itself to copy files into it.
Most of these portable memory sticks are all plug and play. This simply means they are ready to be used whenever and wherever. Just plug in the drive to your USB port and drag files into the listed hard drive. Just remember, do not pull this stick out of the USB port without pressing "safely remove hardware" on your start bar. Failure to do this can result in frying your flash memory. Best of luck!
