USB memory stick not seen on my computer?

  computerdiv 16:48 13 Jul 2010

Hi all,
my memory stick seems to have given up on me and so I wondered if it is possible to repair the thing? It is no longer seen when plugged in. I have some data on it that I would like to retrieve, if it is not possible to repair it can some one tell me how to at least retrieve the data?

Sounds as though you may have unplugged it while it was transferring data? If that's the case, it's dead I'm afraid.

But try it on another computer if you can, just in case it's the port.

To be safe, when it's working, copy the data onto your hard disc . Then try it in a different port to see whether it's the connection on the stick or the port itself. If it's the stick, get a new one.
