The RealPlayer software offers file management features such as collecting all your media together in a library. This means that you can transfer media files to a portable flash drive from the RealPlayer library without having to use the file explorer of your operating system to locate the files. RealPlayer displays all the media in your library, from where you can select which items you want to transfer to your flash drive. You can also narrow down the results to only certain types of media.

Connect your flash drive to an open USB port on your computer.

Open the RealPlayer application, and then select the "Library" tab.

Select your flash drive from the left sidebar, and then click the "To Device" tab. Thumbnails for all the media in your RealPlayer library are displayed.

Clear the check boxes next to "Music," "Videos" or "Pictures" to narrow down the results, and then clear the check boxes next to all the media that you do not want to transfer. Alternatively, click "Deselect All," and then click the check boxes next to all the files you want to transfer.

Click the blue "Copy Selected Files" button to transfer the selected media to your flash drive.
