sending doc file from usb pen drive

  Kingfisher 17:38 08 Dec 2008

have copied a document to my pen drive, plugged pen drive into a different pc and sent it to desktop, but unless i keep pendrive in usb slot file will not open, because it has the file as J:\my document how do I change the j:\ prefix to c:\ prefix, have never had this problem with xp but the pc desktop I am sending to is Vista premium, what am I missing
many thanks

Sounds as if all you have on the desktop is a short cut to the document.

Use explore to drag and drop to My documents.
