USB3.0 Flash Drive FAQs

 

How to use a USB Flash Drive?

 

 

Method One: On a Windows Computer

 

1. Find a USB port. On laptops, they are typically located on the sides or on the back panel. For desktop computers, most have front ports, as well as several ports on the back side. The front ports may be hidden by a flap.

2. Insert the USB drive into the port. It should fit snugly. Do not force it in. USB drives insert one way, so if it doesn’t fit, try turning it upside down. When you insert the flash drive, Windows will install the drivers for it automatically. You will see notifications about this in the bottom right corner of the desktop.

Unless it has been disabled, the Autoplay window will open when you insert your USB drive. It will list several options depending on what is stored on the flash drive. The most common one is "Browse files..."

If it doesn't, go to Computer or My Computer from the Start menu. This will list the devices attached to your computer. You should see your USB flash drive here. It is often named for the manufacturer of the drive. Double click it to open the drive.

3. Find the file you want to copy. In another window, navigate to the file(s) you want to copy to the flash drive. You can either copy and paste them to the flash drive, or click and drag them.

4. Wait for the transfer to complete. This could take several minutes depending on what you are copying. Once the transfer is complete, you can remove your flash drive.

 

 

Method Two: On a Macintosh Computer

 

1. Plug the drive in any available USB port. Wait a few moments while the computer automatically sets the drive up to be accessed.

If the flash drive has been formatted using the NTFS filesystem, then it will not be recognized in Mac OS X. The flash drive must be formatted in the FAT32 filesystem.

2. Wait for the drive to appear. Once the drive is successfully installed, it will appear on your desktop. You can double-click it to open it and browse the files as you would any folder on your system.

3. Copy and paste or click and drag files and folders onto the drive. Once the transfer process is complete, you can remove the drive from the computer.
