  1. Copying music files to a thumb drive


    I have downloaded music from googles music site, using their google player app on my

    MS Surface Book 2.


    Now I would like to copy these music files to a thumb drive so I can play them in my car. I have no idea how to do this.


    If anyone can help me, would be most grateful.


    Thank you

    Is my thumb drive dying?

    I just downloaded an updated W7 Home Premium x64 SP1 ISO, and I was copying those files over to my W7 installation thumb drive. It seems to fail every time I copy the files over. The drive just disappears, no longer listed in My Computer. I also hear the device disconnected sound. I tried moving it from my front panel USB ports to one of the ports in the back and the same thing happened. I believe this is grounds to call it a dead drive...?

    Hi Hankriegler,

    I would suggest you to follow the steps below:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click file explorer from the list.

    • Select the CD/DVD drive and hit Enter.

    • Select the files you want to copy from the CD/DVD, then select the drive where you want to paste or save.

    Copying files from groove music

    Hi Jason,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We will assist you in resolving the issue.



    You cannot transfer the songs directly onto a USB drive from Groove music. You should know the location of the drive where Groove stores the music you add to the playlist and then move the songs onto a USB drive



    Try the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.



    • Plug in the USB drive and check if the device is connected and detected on the PC.
    • Locate the drive where Groove music folder is located. Usually the location will be the
      My Music folder in the user file under
      C:
      drive. If you have changed the location, I suggest you to locate the Groove music folder.
    • Select all the songs by pressing Ctrl + A keys on the keyboard. To copy selected music onto the drive,
      press/hold the Ctrl key on the keyboard and select the song by clicking on the file.
    • Right click after selecting the files and hover the mouse over to
      Send to option.
    • Select the USB drive to which you want to transfer the files to and wait until the transfer is completed.
    • Check if the files are copied onto the USB drive.


    Write back to us with the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
