Have reviewed other similar questions on Experts Exchange and Microsoft solutions website, none exactly like mine.
I have a USB drive that worked fine with on old computer (WIN XP SP2 with Word 2003) but now, when I create a file on the computer and try to save it to the usb drive I get the message "Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error". I can save to hard drive, but cannot drag a file from hard drive to usb either. Tried opening a new word document from the usb drive, but get following message: "Unable to create the file 'New Microsoft Word Document.doc' The directory or file cannot be created."
