It depends on how good you are with a soldering iron HA :) just kidding.

the two main problems that I get on broken flash drive are:

1. the usb plug has broken off the little board. (you broke the connector off)

2. The chip has came away from the board (you bent it and popped the chip)

The quick and dirty fix for this is get a giant flat pink eraser (the width of your thumb) and some thick rubber bands. If the chip is loose then strap it to its board with some rubber bands making sure they connect back as they should while using the big pink eraser as a backing and support. attach a short usb extension cable so that you will not have to move it to plug it in once you have it strapped in.

If the usb plug is broken off then use the same process attach the usb
extension to the plug remnants and then lay the two pieces as they should be on the eraser and rubber band them together.sometimes it helps to put a little wad of paper under them to make them fit snug. plug it up and away you go.

at this point windows will most likely see the drive and can copy off your files.

HOWEVER( it may complain its not formatted, make sure that you do NOT format it) download recuvia at and have it chew on the drive usually I can get something off the drive occasionally all the files. Just make sure that you have it restore the files to another drive (like your C: drive) that is good. Good luck.

the correct way involves a stereo microscope and micro soldering tools.
and you just "fix" it by soldering it back together.

It depends how it is broken, if it is physically broken then it might be possible. Often thumd drives break at the point where the usb connects to the circuit board in the usb drive. So if you plug it into the computer and put pressure up or down on the drive, it might make a good enough connection to get your files off.
If you have someone who can solder you can also just repair the connections.
If the stick is not physically broken you might be able to use something like getdatabackntfs to get the data off it. FIrst i wiould run a checkdisk from inside windows on the drive and see if it sees anything wrong.

Hello thanks for using fixya

If your cell phone is lost or stolen,it is not possible to trace it unless you ring your cell phone number and someone answers it and returns it to you.But you can inform your network provider with yours IMEI number who can then put the serial number on a shared database.This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone's SIM card is changed

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

Problem accessing memory stick

I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.
