Just bought a new HP Computer with Win 7 Home Premium
I copied some music & video files onto a USB flash drive.
When I plug the flash drive into the new computer, it doesn't "See" themusic or video files.
I have no idea on what is going on.
Anyone got an idea?

To add to Allan's question:

If it does see the drive, how about trying this in the opposite direction, from the Windows 7 PC to the XP PC? How does that go?

Edited by LucheLibre, 03 March 2012 - 08:24 PM.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

Allan,
Yes, the new computer sees the flash drive. Not the music or video files.
It also can see a few documents that were created on my XP machine using Office 2010.

LucheLibre,

I want to copy files from my old XP laptop to my new Win 7 desktop.
I don't want to go the other way.
I don't know why they files are visible on the XP machine and not the new WIN7 machine.
I copied over some photos and odd documents, no problem.
I can't copy my music and videoes.

Make sure the files do not have the system or hidden attribute applied to them.

Have a question, or just wanna chat? Send me a message. Or add me as a friend.

They are coming from another machine and you'll have to take "ownership" as an "Administrator" in order to copy to your Win7 computer.. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1911-take-ownership-shortcut.html
