Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series: Windows 10.
I have a memory stick which is not working . I would like to save the files on it to my desktop.
When i insert the memory stick into USB socket it shows up (in This PC window) after a good deal longer than usual. I right click on memory stick icon and it tries to open. Sometimes it succeeds, but more often I get an error message and it disappears from the screen.
On the odd occasion it does open and the files are displayed but when i try the transfer them to the desktop the memory stick disappears and I get an error message. I have tried it in different ports and on different machines, but same result. '
The error message: 'E:/ is not accessible, A device which does not exist is specified'.
When I check 'properties: I am told, zero bytes. And when I click on 'tools' and run 'check for errors', I am told that Windows cannot access the device
