I have a Sony 16GB USB that suddenly isn't being recognized anymore by both my laptop and computer. The light comes on when it is in the port, but the "not recognized" message pops up.
It's not recognized in Device Manager - Disk Drives, but is seen under Universal Serial Bus Controllers under "unknown device".
All drivers are up to date. I tried disabling and re-installing.
Device status is "windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed?
I don't care about the USB working itself, but is there anyway I can get the files off of the USB?
Thank you very much for your help!
