Remember, if you delete your pictures from the laptop and loose the flash drive your pictures are gone forever. The same holds for the flash drive wearing out or having it's FAT screwed up if the flash drive is removed without using the Windows Safe Removal function.

"transfer photos from computor to usb2.0 flash drive"
If all your photos are in a single location/folder and you want to copy all of them to the USB drive, open Windows Explorer, move the mouse pointer to the folder's name, RIGHT click on the mouse, on the little menu that opens move the mouse to the Copy option and Left click on it. Then move the mouse to the USB drive, RIGHT click on the mouse, on the little nmenu that opens move the mouse to the Paste option and Left click on it. Wait a few seconds for the copy operation to finish.
Then click on the USB icon in the System Tray and select the Safe Removal option. When the USB drive is ready to be removed you will see a window telling you that.
IF you only want to copy some individual photos, use the steps above to select and copy them one by one. When done do the Safe Removal step.

Does anyone know of a way to add only NEW pictures to a flash drive, when you don't know exactly which folders they're in or how many there are? Maybe a way of comparing what is currently on the drive with what's currently on the computer?
Or is the only option to resave the entire My Pictures folder?
I guess it doesn't take too much time to cut and paste, or drag & drop pictures. It's not like doing an entire backup of files. But does it wear out the flash drive to keep resaving everything. I wonder if I can do a search for 'date modified' and find them that way, hmmm...I may have just answered my own question.

DONT DO IT before calling sandisk help...I followed the directions from sandisk website...I dragged and dropped my pics...message said OK..then when i checked, my pics were all LOST....spent an HOUR on the phone with SANDISK technocian trying to HELP me recover, but my pics are lost. He said I should have chosen copy and paste instead of drag and drop, (which is what sandisk recommends in their instructions)...then to further upset my day, he offered me a SANDISK program i could PURCHASE to possibly recover my lost pics...for $39.95...hmmmmmm

When I drag & drop on my system I get Copy not Move. I don't know why your system didn't react the same way.
As for the $ for a recovery system, it's jsut an option not a requirement. It depends on you to determine how valuable your files are. There are other vendors that recover lost files, and certainly more expensive than $40 bucks, choose whoever you want to use.
