Pen Drive load problem
Posted on 2004-11-16
Hello, A friend of mine is having a problem with a pen drive, and I thought maybe someone here has heard of, or come accross something like this before.
She has been using the drive constently on a number of machines no problem. Then last night when she put the drive in her laptop (which was been used all the time) and tries to open the removable disk drive, then gets a message saying that the disk has not been formatted, and would she like to format now. I can't get on to the disk without formatting, which is a bad option as there are important files on it.
This seems pretty unusual, but in fact it happened to my fathers pen drive recently also, but his data was not important, so he just formatted, it was fine from then on.
