How to Use a Lexar USB Jump Drive

Lexar is a computer hardware manufacturer that creases USB flash drives (or jump drives). These jump drives connect directly into the USB port of a Mac or Windows computer and are used to save content, or export data to a computer. Both systems use the jump drive as a data storage device, although the use process is sightly different for a Mac and PC.
