I put my new Scandisk 8GB jump drive into my computer, but my computer says that I don't have authority to add files into it. Yet, when I use my computer at work, it allows me. Both are Dell computer and both run on XP.

Reformat the flash drive then do a scandisk of this so that windows can check for any errors and correct them if possible. You can pretty much expect to loose all files in this drive once you reformat the flash drive. you can reformat the flash drive by right clicking the drive > choose FORMAT > then make sure to use just the FAT32 file system for now then format. Good Luck.
You should be able to install the hard drive to your new computer. And what happened to the old computer? Did your hard drive fail? You can take the hard drive out of it and change the pins to slave cylinder and hook it up to another computer and get the files off of it. You can even run scandisk on it and sometimes fix it enough to retrieve the files you want. then just copy them to your new one. If the hookups are different than new one, you might have to find a friend that has an old one like it.
Good day sir/maam, you must not remove the sandisk especially if its reading the disk, data can get corrupted. In doing so may destroy even your sandisk cruzer. Try the unit in other PC. do it several times. if still cant be recognize, bring it to your dealer, they have in house tech that may save your disk. if not you can demand for a new one if its under warrantee. As for your file, sad to say this you may need to back up more often, especially important ones. hope this helps
When you plug in the Flash Drive to your old computer, it will show up in My Computer probably as Removable disk or "Kingston Data Travler". You want to open that link up and drag whatever files you need into that folder. After doing so you put the flash drive in your new computer and repeat the process except you drag the files out of the folder and onto your desktop or a folder of your liking.
