hi,

i was using my usb flash drive 8gb yesterday and it was working fine. then today when i plugged it into my pc and tried opening it from my computer, i get the following message:

"the disk in drive F is not formatted. Do you want to format now?"

the problem is that i need the data stored in the USB urgently as its my coursework for college.

any help would be appreciated. thanks

Have you tried the flash drive in another computer to try to eliminate the drive or the computer?

Hi,

I just got that problem as well. It was working fine, but now it's not. I've tried it in my latop (which has windows 2000), the main computer (windows XP) and another laptop (windows vista) and I still get the same message. The data is very important to me. Any help?

You guys might try reading the drives from your phone or smart tv, friend's PC, or work/school. I backup my work files to google docs daily (5gb free storage), plus 2nd backup to a USB SCSI pocket drive. No USB sticks for me unless they're SANDISK. Amazon Cloud is also 5gb free storage. HEADS UP! Keep your work on the cloud...
