Once you INSERT the drive it will automatically appear in Windows Explorer or even LINUX.
Of course it needs to be FORMATTED properly (NTFS or FAT32). My NTFS drive showed in Windows 7, Windows XP and Ubuntu.
You can also RENAME the drive in Windows Explorer.
*It will appear with a Drive Letter, often right after your other drives (like F-drive) as well as whatever you named it.
1. INSERT the USB drive
2. open "Computer" in the Start Menu
3. Look on the LEFT for your drive the CLICK it
4. You're looking at a BLANK drive, or some FOLDERS
5. You can create folders, copy and paste etc just like to a Hard Drive
6. When done, right-click the USB symbol in the LOWER RIGHT of Windows and left-click "EJECT" for the USB drive
7. Remove the drive.
