Plug the flash drive into the windows PC first and open "Computer". Find the drive and format it to Fat32 or NTFS. Now plug it into the mac and copy the pictures too it. Now your Windows computer should see the files. Mac will default to making the flash drive use HFS+ filesystem. Windows doesn't recognize this format at all. Mac will see fat32 and ntfs just fine though.
USB flashdrives are usually all plug and play so you don't need any additional drivers for them.
Try plugging the flash drive into a different computer. If it works on another computer your USB slots maybe faulty. If the flash drive is not picked up by another computer then the flash drive is probably faulty.
Just plug the Flashdrive into the USB port of any Computer and the Operating system ie: Windows should just pick it up with Auto play after a few seconds. Open the FLashdrive under My Computer?Computer(depends on the version on windows you are using) Open the Mass Storage device or the drive that shows the Flashdrives details and then just copy your pictures from the folder which you saved them and then Paste them into the Flash drive.
If you want a more detailed description, just let me know what Windows or Operating sytem is on your Computer or the device you want to download from and also the make and model of the Flashdrive.
if this is something you are going to do on a regular basis then you should purchase a firewire if you don't have one already.. and use the DV connection to download your vids to your PC.. Once on your PC you can copy them to your flash drive.

A flashdrive shows up in Windows as a new drive letter un Windows Explorer. If you right click on My Computer (XP), Computer (Windows 7) you can select explore or open. The dialog box that opens is split in half. the left side shows the "drives" and corresponding letters. Typically, you will have a Local C:\ for your Primary hard drive, CD Drive D:\ for a CD/DVD and the flash drive will show as Removable Drive E:. To copy work to the new flash drive, you can select save as from your program and select the drive letter that you saw the removable drive named in Windows explorer.
You can also, from the folder named My Documents, copy the file by right clicking on it, then selecting the flash drive letter and pasting into the empty window associated with it on the right side of the divided Windows Explorer screen.
