I am the person that will be helping you today.
You should be able to simply plug it into the computer and it will work. After you plug it in, go to your My Computer screen and see if you see any removable drives. One of those will be your usb drive. If that doesn't work, please let me know.
I look forward to hearing your feedback concerning whether or not your problem is fixed.
I hope to hear back that all is working. If this is so, please do not forget to rate my help on the top of this page (choose the number of stars and click the Submit button). If it is not, please respond below.
I will be standing by,Jason
May I ask for an update to your problem? Do you need further assistance or is your thumbdrive working now?
