A USB KEY being a flash drive?

You'll need a viewer that's compatible with whatever the file types are that are on the drive. Have you tried clicking on one of the video files? If windows 7 already has a utility to view it, the file should open.

If not you might try something like VLC. If you still have problems post back the file extensions of the video files. There's some info on VLC and file extenstions in my reply here:

As above but first step is to go to "Computer" and see if you can see your key/pen/flash drive (so many names for the same thing). Plug it in first obviously. Then you can look at the files inside it and proceed as already given.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yep, and on Wifi we have "pass phrase", "key" & "password", the last one confusing it neatly with a router password.

Flash drive and pass phrase was where we started - pity they didn't stick with it.

EDIT: OMG - loved the pics.

[re-boot now means factory restore and programs are apps]

I believe manufacturing terminology and user geographical locations has a lot to do with why so many names have emerged for the same thing.

Dave your answer for "How to view my pictures & video on my USB KEY DRIVE" was very confusing. I had my nephew and he plugged my USB KEY DRIVE in my laptop then to click start on my key or screen then double click on Documents double Click removable disk or double click on my pictures whatever BUT SO SIMPLE Dave you made it very complicated.

Confusing? It sounds like your nephew did exactly what I asked 'Have you tried clicking on one of the video files? If windows 7 already has a utility to view it, the file should open.' We can only assume you know how to navigate to the disk and then to the files.

Also when you first asked you said they were 'video' files. Video files have so many different formats that yeah, they may not be viewable by whatever you have currently installed on your computer. But then in your postings today you said they were 'pictures'. Well just about anything will open a picture file.

"Derek you too you made it so complicated"

There are many ways to do things on computers. I don't regard my #2 as particularly complicated. I haven't counted the mouse clicks but at a glance there is very little in it. You just choose the method that suits you most.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
