For the last week I have been trying to take some photos from my downloads and transfer them to a memory stick. I have not been able to do so, why can't I click onto a photo file and drag it to my memory stick?? Also where is help for such questions?

I am using Ubuntu operation system, is your help in regards to Ubuntu? I am
not to good with this operating system, so if you could be more exact in your
instructions. I open my downloads and then I try to drag them, but are unable
to do so. Just what do you mean by the following?
Try open window with your memory stick and folder with photo and just drag
and drop your photo with mouse.

        Thank You for the help.

Hi Bill,

Please try this and tell me where we differ : (I am using Ubuntu Karmic)
1. Goto "Places>Downloads" in the panel (Top)
2. Goto "Places>#MEMORYSTICK" in the panel. Replace #MEMORYSTICK with your drive's label. This opens another window.
3. Resize the windows so your can see them both.
4. Now, Try dragging the file from the "Downloads" window to the "#MEMORYSTICK" window.

See if you get any error messages.

Can you help with this problem?
