Hi,

I'm looking for some advice on USB pen drives. I'm running Mandrake 10.1, and want to be able to transfer movie/audio files from my Mandrake pc to my win xp machine. I have 2 CD Writers/Re-Writers in my Mandrake machine but I'm not sure how to go about transfering data onto the CD's. So, I thought about going with the USB Pen Drive (Linux Compatable). Any suggestions?

Thanks

Jason (Newbie to Linux)

just get yourself a pen drive and plug it in Mandrake and other distros will automagically Wink put an icon on your desktop for the pen drive, then you just copy things across as you would between any device

Try K3b: if you've ever used any CD burning software in the past, it's pretty simple. If not, there's the manual.
