16GB Kingston DataTraveler101 Broken?
I bought a 16GB Kingston DataTraveler yesterday, somehow on my first used, it worked perfectly, i transfered all my media files in it, but i accidentally unplug it w/o safely removing it, the other day i tried plugging it again on my laptop but my laptop cannot access it,. my laptop somehow read it but when i open it, it says "Please insert a drive into into drive E:", and when i look in its properties the capacity is all 0 bytes, i tried plugging to other computers but no luck, any help would be appreciated and advance thanks.

Check out the links below to see if any data can be detected/recovered, try Recuva first as it has a good success rate;
http://www.snapfiles...tarecovery.HTML or http://3d2f.com/tags...sh/disk/repair/
If you do not need the data on the memory stick anyway right click on it then format, once formatted copy your data across to it again but this time only remove the memory stick after closing it or after shutting down the computer.
Good luck and let us know how it works out.

forget about the files, because i have a backup of it in my laptop,, all it matters is my usb, i dont want to spend another $35 again, dumb usb.. unlike my 4gb scandisk usb, even if i unplug and plug it w/o using the safely remove thing, and even if i drop it, still works 100%...
