After months of hiding, I finally surfaced from my cave and decided to post here.
my USB thumb drive was dropped recently. it was a power outage, but the drive was not connected, and i couldn't see. my hand slid across the computer desk and "thwack" USB drive dropped to the floor. Poor drive T.T
the next day i decided to test the drive for damage.
i connected it to my desktop, note that none of my USB ports are defective, Nokia phone and printer can connect thru them. Nada. no response. not even detected.
i tried to lurk the whole internet for answers, but still, none.
i tried connecting it to 2 laptops, still no response.
i tried data recovery from Datadoctor, but it says
'Datadoctor Pen Drive Recovery can not detect a USB drive connected to your computer. please reconnect, and click 'Retry'.
i retried, and still, no response.
Additional Info: the drive is a generic 'CD-R King' 2gb portable thumb drive bought last March of 2007.
so anyone out there, i have only a word for you
