You plug it in to any USB drive and it should be detected automatically by your operating system as long as it is Windows 2000 or later.
Aalternatively, some come with encryption programs the lock down the data, which would require the installation of software in order to function.

Mostly though, you should be able to plug it in, wiat for it to install, and simply drag and drop files into it just as you would any hard drive.

Be careful, though, when removing them, because Microsoft uses a deceptive wiritng procedure which tells you the writing process has been completed long berfor it actually does complete. That is why Microsoft builds in a procedure for disconnecting USB devices so that it pushes the remaining writes to finish before telling you it is safe to remove the removeable drive.

Bought sandisk cruzer blade usb flash drive 1 day ago but unable to instll it properly.sometimes it is working properly but unable to continue to use it since i formated it.


To make sure that the usb flash drive is working, try inserting it in a different computer. If the problem persists, you may have a defective usb flash drive. Try returning it back to the store where you bought it from to avail of the product warranty. If the store where you buy it is legit, they should replace your item with a working one. To avoid this problem in the future, try using it in the store first before taking it home.

Bought a maxell 8gb usb flash drive. When I try to use it it comes up with message "insert disk into drive j". Any suggestions?


By trying to use it I take that to mean you go to My Computer and select the drive you believe it to be.

Try going to My Computer with the flash drive unplugged and then plug it in while watching My Computer for a new drive letter to appear. That will be the one to use.

If you select the wrong one you will get the message you are experiencing.

Bought a 2gig maxell flash pen and wanted to use it for storing my work on it but i cant seem to work it and i need to save my work on this flash pen can some one please help


If you are using Win98 the problem is the USB ports themselves. You must locate and install USB drivers to make them functional. Other than that the USB should reconise the flash pen after a few minutes.
Now if it see it, to store in the drive, Save the information to a file/folder and then right click and choose SEND TO and pick the letter drive that is your flash pen and that will do it. If you can do drag and drop open the window that has your info and open a window that shows your pen drive left click and hold it down a drag it to the pen drive - when you see the + just release the left click and it should be on the pen drive.
Hope this helps you, good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly
