The falsh drive was working just until 2 hours ago. If felt very hot so I removed it. Now that it has cool down, I plugged it to the usb port-no light, computer does not recognize. How can I recover my files if it's dead? I am a teacher and all my files, etc. are save on this flash drive.

    I was trying to use my flash drive on an older pc i just reinstalled windows xp on. It lit up but never was detected. I removed it to try another usb slot and it was really hot. I tried another slot, but it didnt work. Also tried it in my laptop (that i use it in every day). No luck there either. Luckily I had backed it up on the laptp a few weeks earlier, so i didnt lose much data.

Firstly, if the files are THAT important, why is your ONLY copy on a device like that? That's your first mistake.
Secondly, they cost like $10 now

You don't have backup copies of these "important" files? Why would you not have a copy on your PC/Laptop, that you copy back and forth?
Good news is $10 gets you a new one

SanDisk 4GB cruzer URGENT problem! Please, please help! :)


it may have overheated and became stuck. Stick it in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer for 1/2 hour then try it. Do not leave it out without power for long or moisture will condense on it.
