In only a few moments, you will be able to transport data from your desktop or laptop computer onto a USB flash drive and be on your way.

Open "My Computer" ("Computer" in Windows Vista) and double-click the removable disk icon. This is the USB flash drive. Leave the window open.
3. Select the content you want to copy onto the USB drive and click and drag the files into the removable disk window. This will copy the files and place them onto the drive.
4 Close the removable disk window. While in "My Computer," right click the removable disk icon and select "Eject." This will disconnect the USB flash drive from all of the programs it had been using and make it safe to remove the device form the computer.
