How can i send pictures from windows photo gallery to verbatim?

When you connect the SmartDisk into the USB port of your computer, the computer will detect this as an external storage device. When you open this SmartDisk you can create folders to store your photos. Just select your photos from your computer where the photos are stored then copy and paste these photos into the folders on the SmastDisk.

MY Apple computer all of a sudden is not recognizing my 160GB Firelite. It has power but when plugged in the icon won't appear on the desktop and I can't access the drive? Was working earlier in the day.

Try going to utilities in the applications folder, in utilities select disk utility and see if the drive shows up, if so select repair disk after selecting the SmartDisk. If not showing select your hard drive and run repair permissions and see if it helps. Failing this you need a 3rd party disk repair solution like DiskWarrior. The information is still there!
