How to Transfer Movies to Flash Drive

Movies no longer have to be limited to DVD disks; flash drives can store movies and play them on other computers just as well. However, large movies, such as full-length DVDs, require a large amount of storage space, which many flash drives do not have. If you want to use a flash drive to transfer movies from one computer to another, buy a drive that has a storage capacity in excess of 8 GB. Transferring a movie to your flash drive is a simple process, but the movie, depending on its size, may take a while to transfer.

    Locate the movie on your computer, and right-click it. Select "Copy," or "Cut" if you want to move it without keeping a copy on your computer.

  2. 2

    Go to "My Computer," and click on the flash drive.

  3. 3

    Select a folder on the flash drive to which you want to transfer the movie. Right-click the screen, and click on "Paste" to transfer the movie to the flash drive. Wait for the movie to finish transferring; movies may take a while to transfer due to their large size.
