This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

When you say not recgonised, do you mean you get an error message popping up telling you there is a problem, or there is 0 activity whenever you plug this in?

Because with a bad file system, you have a chance, but with a dead key, you have no chance, unless you take it to a specialist.
