That is a bad sign.

I have had some luck with Partition Find and Mount. Free for personal use.

Best of luck.

G/Day I tried that but no good I'm afraid.

I guess if the computer is not pickingup the stick then its history.

I don't suppose there is a program to reprogram a memory stick ?...

Sorry to say, but if the light is not on then I`m afraid no one is home. So to speak.

The program should have worked if it had been a corrupted software issue. Meaning the data that is written to the flash drive that tells Windows to look for the drives contents had been damaged.

This sounds like a sort of mechanical failure. I do`t know of any other options. Perhaps another member may jump in with an idea.

A linux live CD might be able to read it, even if its a mechanical failure, but thats a long shot in the dark, linux live discs are free and no installation involved, so it couldnt hurt however. . .
