Suppose you have files on your XP computer in separate folders called Phot, Goo and Zoo. And you Copy each folder and then Paste to the flash drive.

Will the folders show up on the flash drive as separate folders or will it just have the individual files?

Also if you copy a folder that has subfolders, and paste to the flash drive - on the flash drive, will it still have the folder, subfolders, and the files?

File copying is the same regardless of what you're copying to. If you copy a folder to a flash drive, you'll have a copy of that folder (and all its content) on the drive. The same thing would happen if you copied a folder from your My Pictures to your desktop.
