Hi, I'm trying to off load a bunch of photos stored on my old computer. The computer is very slow and takes about 20 min. just to boot up. When I insert the flash drive into the USB port, the computer does not recognize it and hence, I cannot transfer the photos to the flash drive.

Does anyone know how to fix this or a better way to get the photos off my old computer?

Hi Kesaco and welcome to the forum!

Do you have any other USB devices (printer possibly) attached to the system and if so, do they work?
Does the flash drive light up when the drive is inserted?

If the system takes 20 minutes to boot I would suspect a virus/malware issue.
I would download, update and run MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware.
Get the free versions
Do the full scans with both.
It could take considerable time so please be patient and let the scans complete

In the beginning there was the command line.
