Windows 7: Download from flash drive

Vista, Windows7, Mint Mate, Zorin, Windows 8

so I use my Linux to initially download to a flash drive
As already suspected by Devux, this may be the key. Right click on the file and go to properties. What do you see as "Type of File".

I doubt the drive is formatted as ext3 or etx4. You'd have to manually partition it with mkfs.filesystem and if the OP did that I think he'd know why it doesn't work on 7.

I'm not sure of what your skill level in windows is, so apologies if I'm over simplifying.

If you can see the file, can't you just:

1. Left click on the file, do not release the left mouse button
2. Drag it to the desktop, release the left mouse button

or open another instance of windows explorer, navigate to the desired folder (or create it) and use the same procedure to drop it into that folder?

If this is not your issue, being more specific will produce more helpful responses.
