Greetings BC'ians!

To make matters simple, my problem is that my thumb drive will not open. When ever I click it, it says "Please insert a disk into (G:)". As stated above I am using a Transcend JF V30/1GB. I have had this thumb drive for over 2 years. About a year ago it gave this problem but I never got down to fixing. I now need a thumb drive for college and instead of buying a new one, I thought I'll try and salvage this. So, any solutions?

Many thanks,
Aaron M.

P.S
I have tried renaming it and changing the path file from (G:) to (H:) but it did not work. Re-formatting is my last option as I am unsure whats on it and it could be important. :D

So, does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? Could really use some advice as soon as possible, really need a thumb drive for college and like I said, would really rather not buy a new one, as I hardly used this one.

Thank you,
Aaron M.

I am not exactly sure if I can help you resolve your issue, but I will give a go at it.

As best as you can remember, what OS did you last use this thumb drive with and what OS are you using now?

Have you tried using the thumb drive on another computer to see if it works?

Have you tried inserting it into a different USB port to see if the port you are using has a problem?
