A movie can be stored on a usb flash drive?

I would you ask my camcorder recorded videos, currently stored in Photos, iMovie, and the camcorder on a USB flash drive SD card so I can read in my car on the navigation screen. How can I upload videos to a USB key?


Yes, you can store movies on your USB.  Probably the easiest way is to drag the movies.  USB drives which are formulated FAT 32, as most of them, are limited to 4 GB in size for any single file.  Would be good to try with a movie just to make sure that your USB will play your

navigation screen of the car in any way you are intending to do.

  • NB100 - How can I reinstall OS from USB flash drive

    My laptop TOSHIBA NB 100 has no CD-DVD player.
    Operating system is Windows XP Home SP2.

    Operating system won't start.

    Laptop start not at all so I can't run any kind of test when I turn it on.

    The thank you screen come on it says launch safe mode, the networking of safe mode, safe mode comand prompt or start windows normally. But no matter who I chose, that it does not start it only goes to Windows and looks like its starts but then shows the blue Windows screen & stays there.

    So I want to reload Windows from my USB flash drive.
    The BIOS boot sequence is the USB HDD - FDD - FD - CD memory.

    What are the steps for loading Windows USB flash drive?

    If that does not work then I want to connect another laptop with Windows CD in the CD - DVD drive laptop.
    Will this work? The laptop will use the Windows CD in the drive of the laptop to load the operating system?
    How to make this connection?


    You usually have an external USB CD/DVD drive to boot from the Windows XP disc or the Toshiba recovery disc.

    But there is a method that allows you to install Win XP using the 2 GB USB key.
    This is possible because the NB100 BIOS supports booting from USB key.

  • What is the best method to add data to a file stored on a usb flash drive to avoid too many write cycles?


    I'm trying to store an important data on a cRIO sampled stream in the USB flash drive.

    I believe that there are two ways to add data to a file:

    1. open the file outside of the loop, then write to the file loop, then close the file outside the loop.

    Pros; More quickly and efficiently than the opening and closing of files in a loop is resource heavy equipment.

    Disadvantages; If the program fails partially through, all data is lost.

    2. open the file, write to the file and close the file, all in the loop.

    With the advantages and disadvantages as opposed to option 1.

    As my cRIO is finally deployed in a hostile environment and data are valuable and processing speed is not an issue of concern in this project, I'm leaning towards option 2, but after a few basic calculations that I realize that I'll be writing/opening/closing the file of thousands of times and I wanted to know if this will wear out the flash memory?

    My uncertainty is due to not understanding what happens when a file is opened written to and closed.  He writes the new data to new areas of the flash, or it write all data on top?  The latter would cause me problems not too long term!

    Any help gratefully received.

    A big thank you and best regards,


    The 'magic' is not in the File Format (PDM vs vs binary text), but in the "life" of the file.  This solution creates a file of 24 hours and maintains a different file for each day.  If the USB "dies", you lose everything you have not backed up somewhere.  If the program dies (or errors), you lose the data for the current day.  You end up with multiple files (which can be a more or less), but we must still make the trade-off between (duration) of the file and the file number opens (which relates to your concern for the longevity of the USB).  By the way, I suspect that a good quality USB key (it's what you mean, right?  Or do you mean a hard drive USB powered?  Comments probably apply both) can predict today to not die on you, everything just because you make a lot of reads/writes (of course, you could get in-a-thousand...).

  • ITunes can be run with the library of music stored on a USB flash drive?

    I'm out of memory on my MacBook Air and I wonder if it is possible to move my iTunes library a flash drive (that I leave permanently in the USB port) in order to free up space on my hard drive?

    Yes, as long as the drive is large enough and all your media is located in the iTunes Media folder. Cut and paste the whole folder in the folder iTunes music in your profile on the USB. Press on and hold option as launch iTunes to get her choose or create the dialogue. Click on choose and search for the new path. iTunes will now remember this path whenever it is running.


  • Why does movement of files on a USB flash drive last so long?

    I don't know if this is a Windows problem, but when I move a lot of files/folders (no copy, but select, then drag, or cut and paste) a place on the USB to another place on the flash drive, it takes much longer than the same hard disk.

    What is a Windows problem or a problem of flash player?

    If Windows is somehow move the files into pieces on the hard drive, then moving them back to the flash drive, I could see that as being the reason, but this seems very inefficient. If Windows says just the flash drive to move files and it does itself, I wonder if it is an inefficiency in the flash drive (or formatting) or just the nature of how flash drives move some files.

    I don't know that you have understood my problem. I moved the files to the flash drive from one folder to another on the flash drive. When I move tons of files in a folder on the Windows Installer by car, no matter where the records are or the number of files/folders are moved, it usually happens instantly and occasionally perhaps takes a fraction of a second or two; I know it's simply by changing the index (do not physically move the files). With a USB flash drive, it takes seconds to minutes, depending on how much is moved, which is usually much less to install on the windows drive. It's because flash player must physically move the files on the disk, there is no index to put it as on a fixed drive.  In addition the only way to move is to copy in memory, and then write it to the new location.  This means that each overflow bit must go through the USB connection (which is thousands of times slower than SATA cable on the real hard disk), and since then he has to go twice (in and out), it is even half as slow as new.

    There is no transfer between the hard drive and the flash player I know.

    What this means for me, it is the index or take more time to rewrite, or files are actually moved. What I'm asking is if Windows is somehow data transfer (even if it's the index) drive flash disk, then moving them backwards, slowing things down. I think that even moving them by RAM would slow it down, but I'm not sure.  Also considers that the internal drive is cached. So even if a bit should be moved, Windows will just notice "Yes move this bit later."  The progress box says it completed instantly, but really uses lazy writeback just finish the job later.  That is why if you lose power to your computer, it corrupts the files got reported as fact, but were not actually written on the disc.  Flash drives do not use the lazy "write behind caching" because they never know when the user will disconnect unexpectedly, so that they take the slow lane and check writing all ended before they say the progress bar to advanced. 

    You can change this second element by setting your USB device to "best performance" in the device, as Manager below.  But I do not recommend because it cannot handle unplug you the reader more.

    I don't know about you, but I think 256GB is the largest available
    today. But who knows what tomorrow will bring.

    And 256 GB flash drives are expensive enough that, at least as the flash
    the tiny size of the drive is more important, you may want to consider a
    256 GB (or more) external hard drive instead.

  • How can I recover the files from my USB Flash drive before it will be deleted?

    My USB Flash drive has files on it from another computer and only the files that have been stored on the flash drive which cannot be recreated. How can I recover the files? The Flash Player is telling me that it must be reformatted and the files will be deleted. It's two computers I use. Help, please


    Looks like it might be a problem with the flash player.

    Step 1: Try to use the USB stick on another computer or a different USB port.

    You're probably talking about Recovery DVD. No, file structure will be the same and you can't use the USB to retrieve the machine. You may be able to make a second series of DVDs for backup by sector-by-sector copy.

  • Can I use a USB Flash drive?

    Windows XP Professional - SP3 - Version 2002

    Can I use a USB Flash drive to increase memory? My machine has 512 MB of RAM, and I have a 1.80 GHz CPU Celeron (r) processor.
    From what I've researched, because my OS is Windows XP and I have 512 MB of RAM, I cannot use a 4 GB Flash drive.
    I use a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and lots of sample packs and I have need of more memory. My machine is maxed out at 512 MB of RAM.
    If I buy a 4 GB Flash drive, can I load my DAW on the Flash drive and optimal storage space or should I buy a hard drive to accomplish my problem of not having enough memory?

    Thanks in advance!

    512 MB you should be fine for Windows XP. OK, the application may run more slowly than on a modern computer - but performance is reasonable.

    Like me, I have a computer with 1 linear array of 512 MB memory and a 128 MB memory chips - making the total up to almost 640MO - but I use Photoshop CS3 on it daily and it works fine for most tasks.

    However, if you want to get some further improvements to your computer for the RAM intensive applications performance, I would recommend increasing the virtual memory.

    More about memory virtual here-


    To increase the virtual memory-

    Do a right click my computer > click Properties > Advanced tab > settings under 'Performance' button > Advanced tab in the performance Options window > change button under "virtual memory".

    Now select the custom size option.

    The options below, you can see some details like -

    Minimum allowed - XX MB

    Recommended - XXXX MB

    Currently allocated - XXXX MB

    Make sure that you set the value of initial size (MB) near the recommended space. The value of maximum size to a value much greater than currently allocated space. (But always value less than 2048 maximum size - you don't need that much).

    That could give some amount of performance increase - but he won't give you a magical boost of performance.
