I have a memory stick that isn't being recognized by multiple computers and the light which usually comes on doesn't anymore so I assume it is broken.
The problem is that there is some important data on it which I don't want to be lost. I have read that depending on what the problem is, it may be recoverable, but I would have to take it into a shop and that could be quite expensive, even to take a look at it. So I was wondering if someone could help diagnose what is wrong.
I have taken the casing off the memory stick to see if I could find anything wrong with it but I cannot seem to. Here are images:
Can anyone see what is wrong with this? If so, would it be possible to recover data and what would I need to do so?
I'd appreciate any help, thanks.
