memory stick needs formatting

  loutwo 17:09 17 Feb 2008


I have succesfully been usng a memory stick and i am now receiving the message do you want to format the disk, not sure what the problem is but i have read previous queries like this on the forum and bought data doctor recovery and this has not worked to retieve any files.

Any more ideas?

So you did format it?

I dont think you are able to recover files from an external source after its been formatted...

I get that message on mine and just ignore it

No i did not format it. It would not do anything if i selected no but even if you press yes it did not format, it said unable to format the disk.

Looks like i've lost hours of work then.

Thanks anyway.
