My flash drive is not registering on my computer and any other computer in the office it was working fine yesterday. i need to get my information from it. what can i do
i bought a new sony usb flash drive of 1GB, i checked the properties,and discover that it is an empty one.
Some times if a flash drive is not ejected, if it is just pulled out, it can wipe all information. I learnt the hard way, make sure you eject each time. Sorry if this is already known, some times it can be hidden if the file attributes have been set to hidden. Try looking in you view option and see if they are set to hide files set to hidden.
hope it might help

Are you downloading the file or wanting to copy it from your computer to your flashdrive. If you are downloading it, you simply click on "save to" and click on the letter of you flashdrive. If you are copying from your computer, you just highlight the ms office folder and click "send to" and flash drive letter.
Go into mu computer, it should show the flash drive, then try to export the data to your c drive in your computer, either export, or move, or drag it to the other drive, If you highlight each file you should be able to physically drag it over from one to the other. When you get finished, reformat the flash drive, They get messed up sometimes when you move them from one to the other, There is also a free program called "unlocker" google it, whenever something says it's locke or cant be moved, just click on it and bam all of a sudden it's unlocked. You may have a differebt filing system from one machine to the other. like Fat 32 on 1, and NTFS on 2, that causes this kind of stuff to make you insane, I think they do it purposlly so you have to ask thema nad they can charge you,
Have you installed a scanner/another external USB drive since first trying your Flash drive? If so, try unplugging that and re-insert your Flash drive. I had this problem and a friend suggested this and it worked!

hi there...it's indicate there is a vrus in your flash drive.. the virus is hiding and manipulate your file so you can't the file when connected with your computer. if you have recovery program that already install at your computer you can backup the file that you need after you format the flash drive. but if you don't have program don't format the flash drive. maybe you can visit a nearst software store and asking recovery program (ex: office recovery) buy it, install to your computer and you can formatted the flash drive back up your photo using media heal for removeable drive...good luck..
