I have a USB flash drive, that when plugged into any machine (XP, Vista or Windows 7) the following message is displayed:
Indeed looking at the drive in Disk Managment the file system is recognized as RAW. This USB key was previously working on several different XP machines and has not been used on a Mac.
I suspect at some point in time the Flash Drive has suffered a shock, which has damaged the flash chip. Has anyone had any experience or sucess recovering data from these drives at minimal cost. Failing that has anyone got some good tips to give to users on care of USB flash drives?
