I was trying to set up a wireless network. The wizard said to use the flash drive to do this. I didn't realise it would wipe all the data from my pin! Not only that but the pin didn't come with software on a cd, it was incorporated on the pin. And that's gone too! Now it says not formatted, do I want to format it!

Is there anything I can do??

Please, can someone help!!!

What is the brand name of the flash drive?

I have no idea! It is slimline, blue, no name on it, looks like CE FC or PC on the back above made in korea (!) - it cost me 50 - it is blue, slimline, with a hole at the bottom for carrying it on a chain or keyring. Not much help I know! Sorry. :thumbsup:

Guess you'll have to format it and see if it will hold data. If its been wiped already you have nothing to lose. Do that and try to save something to it.
