How to Download an Audio Book to a Flash Drive

By Julius Vandersteen

If you have an audiobook on your computer, you can copy it onto a flash drive so you can listen to it on another computer, or so you can have a back-up copy in case the audiobook is accidentally deleted from your hard drive or the hard drive crashes. For example, you might be listening to an audiobook about business while you're at your job, and you want to resume listening to it that night on your home computer. You can easily download an audiobook to a flash drive.

Step 1

Plug the USB connector of the flash drive into a USB port on your computer. The flash drive mounts on the computer's desktop, where it's represented as an icon.

Step 2

Open the folder on your computer that contains the audiobook.

Step 3

Drag the audiobook file if it's a single audio file onto the icon of the flash drive to copy it over. Drag the audiobook folder if it contains multiple files for chapters or sections of the book to copy the folder and its audio files to the flash drive.

Step 4

Right-click the icon of the flash drive, and then click "Eject." Unplug the flash drive from your computer.
