Does it have a little switch? Try moving it to the open position.

Hi, If you still have your files in Word on your hard-drive, perhaps you should re-format your usb stick and then transfer the said files onto it again.

Jammed tray - you should be able to see a pin-hole on the front of the drive, this is for emergency opening of the tray - switch off pc and then insert something like a straightened-out paper-clip, push this gently into the pin-hole, this should open the tray.

Good luck ... hope you have had a lovely Christmas/Thanksgiving!

ps - although I said 'push this gently' it does sometimes need a bit of pressure!

Have just found out there my pictures of my classes on stick, don't know l opened it but it worked . Now l want to get all my docs word files of but don't seem to work. Have gone from my computer to removable storage and can't get any further
Is it possible to mix on stick pics and word docs together.
Sorry for all the questions. All of you that help me have a wonderfull new year and l hope l don't bother you so much as this year.

Yes it is possible, provided you have enough room on stick.

Left-click on My Computer, then right-click on the icon of your stick (it should have a name, probably UDISK followed by a device letter i.e. (D:), (E:) or similar), then Left-click on Open -this should then show you everything on your stick, probably in folders.

Also you should Right-click on the icon of your stick in My Computer and then Left-click on Properties (last on the list) - this will then show you how much space on your stick had been used and how much is unused. Let us know here what those figures are.

Ask as many questions as you like, that is what we are here for!!

The USB stick should show in "My computer" as another drive, you can then use Windows Explorer and drag and drop what you like onto it untill it`s full.
Just another suggestion but I find this the easy way.
Good luck.
