Installing a Jump Drive
In order to install a Jump Drive on your computer, here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step 1: Plug the Jump Drive in
Remove the lid of the drive and slide the USB connector into your computer’s USB port. Immediately, the device will be powered on and the installation of any drivers or software needed to use the jump drive will begin. These drivers are usually miniscule in size, and won't effect your computer's performance in any way. In fact, almost every accessory that you use with your computer comes with built in drivers that are installed once you plug in the device; this holds true for printers, wireless mice and keyboards, and speakers.
Step 2: Wait for the installation to complete
A few seconds after plugging into your computer, the operating system will finish installing it. Windows will show you a notification message telling you that the storage device is now ready for use.
Step 3: Install additional software
The device might have come with software such as a drive explorer, encryption or other such software. After a successful installation, Windows may show you a message box stating that you can install extra software for the drive. Simply follow the instructions on screen to install the software. It is not necessary to install additional software, although certain features may not work if you decline to install it. To quickly begin using your Jump Drive, you can skip this installation, though it is recommended to read through the details of any software included, as many USB software suites are actually quite helpful and make using your USB device much easier.
Step 4: Access the Jump Drive
Once all the installations are complete, locate the drive icon on your computer and open it. You can now copy and paste files or folders into the drive and access them later when needed from other computers.
