USB Pendrive won't open



Sony Micro Vault has stopped opening up on any PC or Laptop. Help, it's got about half a gig of important stuff all in the one place. No system is recognising it. There is a very occasional error message which says that the driver is missing but the light on the pendrive isn't flickering anymore.

Any good ideas?

Is it showing up in my computer along side of the other drives ?,if so it is still being recognised, go to start all programmes /accessories / system tools/ DOS prompt command click on this / and when the the black box appears type in CHKDSK/ x.
x being the designated letter of the pen drive . this will check usb pen drive for errors / if it finds any errors it wont fix them because it is read only mode, so if there are any errors found type into the Dos command box chkdsk /x/ F
the F means fix and it will fix any errors when you restart the system
Hope this helps because once you format your usb pen drive you will have to bite the bullet and lose all data on the pen drive. good luck jmb
