Serato Pro Tip: Copying Crates to a USB Flash Drive

I was actually reminded about this little gem by a tweet linking to an old Serato Newsletter “support tip of the month”. If you’ve got any great tips you want to share, feel free to hit us up on Twitter and let us know too!

If you’re wanting to go back to back with a friend and just use one computer, or just want to have your super club weapon banger crates on you at all times, Serato DJ and Scratch Live allow you to easily copy these to a USB flash drive.

To copy your crate(s):

  1. Open the Files panel in Serato DJ / Scratch Live
  2. Click on the crate(s) you wish to copy
  3. Drag the crates onto your USB flash drive in the Files panel. You will then be prompted to either ‘copy’ or ‘move’ – make sure you select ‘copy’
  4. A progress bar will now appear below the files panel. Once this is completed you can remove your USB flash drive (make sure you do this safely)

You now have a copy of your crate(s) on your USB flash drive. Simply plug it into a computer running Serato DJ / Scratch Live and your crates will appear, ready for you to use!
