    this may be simple - I have old files on an old toshiba 4010CDT laptop which i would like to transfer to my PC. the tosh has cd read-only drive but only writes to floppy disc. I thought i could transfer to a usb stick - there is a usb port but it searches for driver and does not find any - help!

    Depending on your operating system it sounds like you need the device driver that originally came with the USB memory stick. What make is it?
