How can I recover my Verbatim Store 'n' Go Red 4G memory stick?

My laptop (Window XP) stopped recognizing my Verbatim drive all of a sudden. Whenever I click it a message pops up saying that this drive is not formated and suggests to format it. Please help as I am on a mission and have valuable data on my memory stick.

Thanks in advance.

The dread "drive not formatted" error message generally indicates hard disk problems. This can occur for many different reasons including a computer virus, hard drive problem, power surge, or problems with the operating system. If you receive this type of error message, it is important that you act carefully to keep your important data safe.
1. Do NOT click "Yes" to format the drive in case that the formatting process makes things worse.
2. Do NOT attempt to write anything new on this hard drive in case of any data loss.
3. Download data recovery software to help you. There are many data recovery tools out there. But, no all of them could be efficient and useful enough. You should pay much attention to opt for a proper one.
So, if you are interested, you can firstly try a hard drive data recovery freeware:

Here is some detailed information of this freeware:

4. Do not save or back up all the restored data on the same hard drive in case of any data loss.
5. After the data recovery process, simply format this drive to see whether it can work functionally as before.
In the future, you should learn a lesson to be more careful about your data and always back it up well.

It is possible to recover formatted memory card only when you don't save any data to the formatted memory card. Because when you format memory card, the data remains there but the space it occupies is made available. So after the first format, you'll be able to carry out formatted memory card recovery with a near 100% success. But once new data is written to memory card, the chance of full memory card recovery will become less.
Hope you recover smoothly.

You can try your USB Drive on a Another PC. If it’s the same issue then I am afraid that you have a faulty USB Drive. You have no other option but to format the drive. You might be able to use a recovery software & try to retrieve the data. Recovery software are bit expensive & cannot guarantee a complete data recovery

How do i fix a verbatim 53032 1 tb external hard drive to recover files? suddenly it turned to raw drive recognized by the pc but the blue light is on


Hello,
Computer external hard drive could become RAW file system due to a series of reasons, including virus attack, drive unformatted error, and drive corruption and more.
And no matte which one yours is, always remember not to format this RAW USB hard drive before you do take left drive data back with success.
Hence, from now on, stop writing this RAW drive and perform data recovery processes there to see whether all your original drive files are still recoverable.
