Using USB Flash Drives to Save Your Work
Flash Drives (Also known as "Thumb Drives" or "Flash Drives") are used
to store files, music, documents, pictures, and other data. While
these drives provide a small and convenient way to store documents,
users must take care to properly remove the drive after they are
finished. Pulling the USB drive out of a computer without "safely
removing" will cause damage and loss of files.
we will use USB Flash drives to save our work and transfer files
between the Windows Lab and the MusicTech Linux Lab.
Steps for Using USB Drives on Windows
Insert the USB Drive into a USB port (on the front of the
computer). The computer will read the drive and put this window
on the screen. Select "Open
folder to view files" and click OK.
A window showing your "Removable Disk" will open. You man double
click on any document you wish to open. Or, you may click the
minimize icon to return to the desktop.
To Open a document to a USB drive, select "File->Open" from the menu
bar of the program.
Click on the "Desktop" icon one
Double Click on "My Computer."
Double Click on the "Removable Disk (E:)"
Find your document and double click to open.
Saving your work follows the same steps.
When you are ready to remove the USB drive, click once on the Green
Arrow on the Start Bar "Safely Remove
Select "Safely remove USB Mass Storage
Device - Drive(E:)"
