What type of operating system you are using? If it is a Windows XP's or vista it is a "Plug and Play" i.e automatically detects the type of device that's been attached and, if needed, automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it.
Windows "Plug and Play" plays very well with USB. Chances are installing your USB flash drive means simply plugging it in, and letting Windows do the rest. (It may ask you for your Windows installation CD to get drivers.) When done, you should find another drive letter on your machine that is the USB drive.
To be clear, you should definitely review any documentation that came with your USB device.
While flash drives and other "disk-like" devices tend to just work, manufacturers of other devices often have you install their software on your system before plugging the device in for the first time.
So just check the materials that came with your new peripheral.

Your taskbar should notified you that new hardware installed ". Click on that, select the device you wish to remove, and Windows will do things like flush the disk buffers and ensure that from the operating systems point of view it's safe to unplug it.

So So Happy USB flash drive won't install onto windows xp

Format the flash drive without using the executable installation program on the flash drive.

Insert new flash drive, do not let anything auto-run. View the drive in the file explorer. Right click on the drive and choose Format in XP to let XP do a full format (not a quick format) of the drive. This will ensure that the drive works on XP... it will then also be accessible on a newer system.

XP may also not be able to work with flash drives over 32GB, or will only give you access to the first 16 or 32GB.

How to install antivirus

Pen drives are virus protected by the OS as an extra hard drive, and part of the system. It will not work if you install programs there. The install files will become just useless files.

Cannot install whs on ssd using flash drive

I would suggest cloning the OS install.
Install the OS on the 80GB SSD with the Foxconn board that is giving you troubles with the 40GB SSD. Then clone the drives and swap SSDs.
WHS 2011 probably will throw up a flag stating that it needs to be reactivated because of hardware changes, but it should go smoothly.

Can i install any antivirus in my 4gb pendrive

The short answer is NO, because an antivirus software has to function in compliance with a computer's operating system.
However, there is a relatively new class of software that you can install on your USB Flash Drive and run from the drive.

One such software is the U3 Smart compatible software that you must be familiar with since you have a SanDisk flash drive.
There is also the PortableApps brand of software. These run on ANY flash drive, not just the U3Smart ones.

To be able to use them you must install the PortableApps minimal suite. It is a small Operating System (platform) that will handle the applications on the flash drive. And there is one or two PortableApps version of some antivirus software you can use.

In addition to the PortableApps, you have the LiberKey applications. These can run on a Windows computer or from a flash drive.

Click the links above, download and install on your flash drive. You will be able to add compatible software later, including antivirus applications.

Unable to install card studio 2009 has dvd-rom instead of cd-rom


Well, you have a couple of choices:

1) You can have a DVD installed in your computer. Usually around $50.
2) You can purchase a flash drive (thumb drive) of at least 4GB. Depending on the size of the files, you may need an 8GB. You can have a friend copy the entire DVD onto the flash drive. Then you can take the flash drive and copy the entire DVD from the flash drive to your computer and install the program or install directly from the flash drive. (It may auto start when you insert it into a USB port.)

If you install it from the flash drive you will probably have to insert it every time you run the program. If you copy the DVD to your hard drive you will not have to and it will run faster.

Thanks for using Fixya.
