Insert THE USb stick, open it using Windows Explorer (it may well open automagically), navigate to the file you want to copy, right click on it, click 'copy'. Then navigate to the folder you want to copy to on the D drive, right click on a blank area of the part of the screen showing the directory, then click 'paste'.

Thanks but I thought there was a way to add copy to and add to the context menu

Sorry - I don't know Vista well enough to know if that's the case.
