Plug in the stick, it should be detected automatically. If ME doesn't have the drivers though you'll need to get them and install them before you can use the stick. Once it is installed go to My Computer and you'll see the stick as a different drive. Drag whatever you want to the stick and it will be copied over.

Without knowing what I was doing I hit copy over ichon in my document and now drive F shows 97 used 3 left does that indicate a copy was done to stick? If so when I plug into XP how do I download?I thank you for reply,neither book mentions the stick.

You might be seeing some overlap in drive letters.

Do you have a printer attached that has a slot(s) to plug in chips from a camera? If so, those are assigned drive letters, and a problem can arise when the printer is plugged into the PC, those slots are assigned letters and you plug in a flash drive. Windows has a tendency to get confused.

If you have one of these printers unplug it and reboot. Plug in the flash drive and see if yo get a better result.

To check (with the flash drive plugged in):

Go to Start>Control Panel>Adminstrative Tools>Computer Management>Storage>Disk Management

On the right side you will see a listing of drives. Some will be called disks, some CD ROM, etc. Your hard drives, those slots in the printer, and the flash drive are considered disks.

Look for a disk on the right side that shows as being slightly less than 4GB. For instance, my 8GB drive displays as a 7.47 GB drive. In the gray box at the left end of the listing for my flash it says:

Disk 1
Removable
7.47 GB
Online

Yours should say the same thing except for the size.

In the white box to the right of this listing is the name of the drive and the drive letter it uses. Now you know what letter to look for when copying.
