I was transferring data from my computer to my memory stick and while doing so, windows explorer ran into an error. I am no longer able to access my memory stick and every time I try to open it, it asks me to format it. Is there any way I can recover the files from it? Thanks.

you could try data recovery software or try the memory stick on another computer.... if the stick doesn't show up on any computer though you may not be able to recovery anything short of pro data recovery shop ( such as Ontrack )

good luck...

( I've used data recovery software from runtime systems ie getdataback.. with some success but don't know if they have anything for memory sticks....
