USB Flash driver installation
The current mainstream operating systems Winxp and win7 generally do not need a driver to recognize the USB flash drive. Even if some USB flash drives need to be installed on a computer for the first time, just follow the prompts to “auto search” the driver. But there are also some dedicated USB flash drives or USB flash drives with special functions that require a separate driver installation. Such as some encrypted USB flash drives, or dual-boot USB flash drives. I have seen some USB flash drives that can also select the boot mode and use a switch on the USB flash drive. This special-purpose USB flash drive generally requires a separate driver installation before it can be used normally.
Carefully plug and unplug the USB flash drive?
Although the USB flash drive uses the USB interface to support hot swapping, I don’t recommend you to do this, especially when the USB flash drive indicator is flashing, the plugging damage rate is very high when the USB flashing light is forcibly flashed. Regardless of whether it is XP or Vista or Win7, I suggest that you close any files and folders opened by the USB flash drive first, wait for 5 seconds, eject the USB flash drive from the system, and then unplug the USB flash drive. If it is indeed urgent or for other reasons to quickly pull out the U disk, it is better to insert it after 10 seconds.
Write protection switch of U disk
Genuine U disks generally have a write-protect switch, which is a sign that locks a key. If you slide it to the locked state, you cannot write files. In addition, if you need to slide the switch, you must eject the USB flash drive, unplug the USB flash drive and slide it to another state, and then plug it into the computer to perform read and write operations. If you are using files on the USB flash drive, the slide switch will damage the USB flash drive. I have personally witnessed the lesson of blood, everyone must remember these words.
