Yesterday I plugged in my usb memory stick and it gave me the ďThe disk in drive G is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?Ē error, and I couldnít access my data. Between the penultimate time I used it, which was just a couple of days ago, and yesterday I havenít updated, installed or uninstalled any software (or hardware for that matter). I THINK I may have pulled it out a second to early, before the message telling me that itís now safe to remove appeared.
Since yesterday I tried pretty much everything: about 5 different programs that were supposed to get my data back, strange ms-dos procedures, reinstalling Windows, plugging it in all 4 usb ports in my computer, plugging it in all usb ports of 2 other computers and generally every solution that I could find and had to know-how to attempt. Nothing worked, I still get the same message and still canít access my data.
This data is of utmost importance to me, at the risk of sounding ridiculous, I am more or less screwed without it.
Can anyone help me? And no, it has to write protection switch. Or a driver for that matter.
Please keep in mind that itís the data I care about, recovering my stickís functionality is of little importance to me if I can get the data back. So formatting is totally out of the question.
From what I understand or remember, flash drives may have a limited r/w cycle. In addition it may actually be a hardware error on the stick itself. I have received that error on plug in memory sticks (where you insert the memory card into a usb stick).
With yours, I'm suspecting it's the latter and not the former that is causing the error. It's picking it up as a drive but the stick is probably damaged so it can't read the data.
