And where have you got stuck? Have you inserted the thumb drive? Have you mounted it?

you should be able to open up two windows, one with the letter located in it and one of the usb directory and then just drag and drop. When you drag and drop in puppy you should get a pop up window asking if you want to copying or move. What kind of error messages are you getting? If you do the short key method puppy will pop up a window that you will have to type in the path/name of file.
