BACKUP to HP USB

How can I back up to an 8GB HP USB flash drive? The various options seem only to relate to CD/DVDs. It is not recognising the D drive with the external flash drive in it.  

 

Operating System is Windows 7. PC is an HP Pavilion Slimline.

Re: BACKUP to HP USB

What model PC are you using and what flash drive are you using?

 

Do you hear the insert sound when you plug in the flash drive? Open up my Computer and look for the flash drive. Do you see it?
