memory stick is dead!!

Discussion in 'Personal' started by beckycharles, Nov 27, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    Much to my annoyance my memory stick has died, just as I was about to back it up for the first time in ages. Light doesn't come on, comp doesn't pick it up. Its a sandisk 16gb and I've not had it for long ( maybe six months). Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone managed to recover lost data? Most of it is on the server at school or on an external hard drive, but some things are not backed up :(
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance!

    Sometimes sticking them in the freezer for an hour (put in a plastic bag first) helps - sometimes it doesn't but you have nothing to lose.

    So long its innards aren't damaged, your average techie guy in your local computer repair shop can recover the data for you.
    Good luck! xx
