saving 2007 word docs to a flashdrive

I have Word 2007 and cannot save a Word 2007 doc nor a Word 2007 Compatible
doc to my flashdrive. I get an error message that says something like
"target cannot accept this type of file". I have available space on the
flashdrive and also have had no trouble saving pre-2007 docs to it. Any
ideas? I am using XP Pro. My flashdrive is a Super=Talent Super Flash USB
2.0 Flash. Thanks

Save the document to the HD and copy or send from there to the flash drive.

Don't try to save directly from Word to any removable media. Even if it looks
like you can do it, you're risking your document (see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/CorruptDoc.htm).

Always save to the hard drive, close the document in Word, and then copy or move
the file to the flash drive. Similarly, before starting to edit the document,
copy it from the flash drive to the hard drive and work on it there.
