    Are you trying to open files via command prompt on your flash drive?

    You need to explain exactly what you are trying to do.

    If you are looking for a list of files, try the following. Replace the D: with the drive letter assigned to the flash drive.

    Code:
    dir D:

    Thank you for your help. I am a very confused user, trying to
    access the flash drive sitting in the USB plug in my laptop. I used to see a "D" or an "E" when I issued an "open" command on my OOW (WORD-like, word processor) but I no longer see any such drive options.

    How can I try to see what's on the fllashdrive? ...bkar

    When you plug the flash drive in, you don't see a drive letter in Windows Explorer?

    Have a Windows Explorer (File Explorer) window open and visible when you plug in the flash drive. You should see a Drive with a drive letter added.
