transferring files via flash drive
I am only computer saavy really to do my job as a medical editor and to surf the web. Other than that, not too handy with computer. I want to transfer files from my desktop to my laptop to so I can work from different locations. I bought a flashdrive and inserted it in the USB and then copied the files from my desktop and several from my documents onto the flash drive. I then inserted the flash drive into my laptop USB and downloaded the files to my desktop. Everything seems to be accessable, albeit, a little different format but I am able to use the files. However, when I remove the flash drive then I am not able to access the files on the desktop. Do I have to download the files on the flash drive to the c drive on my laptop and if so, how do I do that?
Thanks a bunch in advance,
