    USB Stick Questions, Please ?


    Hello, Trying to make things easier for another user. If I plug a USB stick into my Mac, it shows up automatically on the Desktop. Great, makes it easy. a. Is there any way to have it show up similarly when plugged into a W10 pc on the Desktop ? It shows (only) in "File Explorer" now. b. And, the USB stick seems to show up in two different places: One, directly Under "This PC" and again at the same hierachial level as "This PC". Can someone explain this for me please ? Why two places ? Which do I want ? Will changes in one effect the other also ? etc. ? Thanks for help, Bob

    :)

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

    USB Stick Questions, Please ?

    USB sticks not recognized...sometimes...Help?

    Hi,

    To better understand why this happens, please answer the following questions:

    • Did this start to happen after installing updates on your computer?
    • Does the USB stick work when you plug it to another device?
    • Do you get any errors when you connect the USB stick to your computer?
    Let's try to run the troubleshooter available on this
    page
    while your USB stick is connected to the computer. It will tell you if it detects anything and automatically correct it.

    Let us know if you have questions.

    Keep us posted.
