Question about PQI Intelligent Stick (267027) Hard Drive

1 Answer

PQI Intelligent Stick -- interrupted file transfer, removed unsafely... rescue data?

I had my USB drive plugged into a Linux computer and was transferring files to it, when an error said a file could not be transferred. I hit cancel, the drive window shut, the drive disappeared off the desktop, and was not found under /media. I unplugged the drive and tried several other computers, linux, Windows XP, Vista -- drive appears as new hardware, shows up in My Computer with generic name, but I can do nothing with it because it won't open -- "no disk in the drive, please insert disk to drive."

I've tried every (free) recovery software I can find -- they either don't see the drive or see it but say it is empty. Properties says it's full. Disk manager doesn't see it. Hardware manager says it's functioning properly and already has the proper driver installed. Rebooting with drive in doesn't help.

Anything else I can try to recover the data on the disk?

Why is my intelligent stick write protected and why can't i format it or at least take the write protection off of it

Remove the device from your computer and check the side of the stick for a small switch that has a picture of a lock around it somewhere. If there is then push it to the other position and that should unlock it for you

I have an 8G Imation flash uSB. It has worked fine till recently but when I insert into port now it shows the files with hieroglyphic names and says it can't open them. Is there something I can do? Thanks...

i think you can defrag a usb drive, if it shows on your 'my computer' list of removable drives- you might try this- you can also run an anti-virus check on it, if you have an anti-virus prog. if that don't work, and the data is stored on your hd, then try re-formatting it.
if that don't work, toss it, and get a new usb flash drive!
good luck!
