Use Your Spare USB Drive as an MP3 Player

It may sound odd to use a USB flash drive like an MP3 player, but if you work on several different computers and want instant access to your favorite tracks, it makes sense. Not all the computers you use have the necessary software media player already installed, so you need to install portable software on your USB memory stick in order to play your music anywhere you go. By using a portable version of a media player, you’ll be able to listen to music straight from the USB memory stick wherever you can find a USB port.

Although each app may come with its own installation instructions, in general, you plug a USB flash drive containing a music library into a computer and download a portable audio player app. Double-click the .exe file and select the flash drive as the target. Thereafter, plug the flash drive into any computer or device with a USB port and click the app on the flash drive to launch the portable media player. Here are some of the popular portable music players you can install on your USB memory stick.
