Installing programs to USB flash drive
Has anyone ever tried to install a large program like Open Office onto a USB flash memory drive? I have been trying with Open Office, but I keep getting I/O errors about half-way through. I believe this is due to the slower transfer rates of USB 1.1 (I'm using old computers) or the write speed of the device. I have also tried installing to the hdd and then copying it over, same problem. Any suggestions? Should I try to do something like not copying the entire OpenOffice1.1.0 directory, and instead go for copying the subdirectories one by one, like copying 'program' and then 'user' etc.?
