Solved Data Recovery - PLEASE HELP!

Post by markie on 2nd September 2009, 11:30 am

Well it had to happen - one of my USB Flash Drives died; light comes on when plugged in but it doesn't get detected at all.

* no show in Disk Management
* no visible signs of damage
* no soldering issues

I've got 2 options -

1) solder chip from dud flash to another flash; problem is that they're not identical
2) pay for data recovery firm

Hello,

Your flash drive's firmware is probably corrupted. Nothing we can do for you here, if it is still under warranty, send it back.
