MP3 Player as Flash Drive
Here's how to use an MP3 player as a flash drive.
First, make sure your computer treats your MP3 player as a flash drive by plugging it in.
When Autoplay pops up, click on Open Folder To View Files. Check to make sure that the MP3 player has a drive letter assigned (Figure B.)
Now find the file you want to put on your MP3 player. (Figure A.) Then copy and paste the file to the MP3 player. (Figure B.)
You are done! To view files on another computer, just plug it in on that computer.
Troubleshooting: Autoplay won’t start? What happened? Just go to My Computer and look for the MP3 player there.
It's easy to make an MP3 player hold un-music files.
