Pictures in Flash Drive are gone

After I inserted my 2GB flash drive into the laptop, the flash drive was scanned for errors. After the scan was done, I found that one of the folders (called M&M with about 40 pictures) was changed from a folder to a file of just 32kb. I couldn't find the pictures in Recycle Bin or anywhere else. I didn't get any hardware error message or scan error message. Right now, I cannot open M&M and its properties show it's a file, not a folder.

I am attaching images of the flash drive directory and the properties of M&M. Would you please take a look and let me know what poosibly has gone wrong? Is there any way that I can get the pictures back? Please help! I'd greatly appreciate your help.

Windows Vista sucks, and there is one reason to prove it.
Was the folder ever a zip folder? Try changing the extention to .zip and see if that helps.

How do I refresh my micro scan disk?


With the scandisk inserted in your computer, locate the drive where you inserted and the file folder with the data you want to erase and delete or empty the file folder. If you do not have an available drive to place the scandisk, connect the media device with the scandisk included and locate the data via drive/file folder. You can locate the drive/file folder by clicking start>computer>drivelocation>scandisk folder.

How do I use a scan disk flashdrive to store the pictures on my computer


I am assuming you have a SanDisk flash drive which has some picture files and you want to download into the computer.

If you have a Windows XP or Vista running on your computer, you simply insert the flash drive onto the USB port. The flash drive will be selected as Drive F: or G: depending on what else is on your PC.

You then transfer these files to your C: drive. This should store the files.

You have not mentioned where these files have come from - if these are from another computer then you can open them directly on your PC.

But if these are created from either a camera or a mobile phone then you should be able to open these on your computer if these are JPG or AVI files.

Hope this helps.

Your pen drive might be having some kind of virus that is creating this problem. Get USB Disk security from http://www.zbshareware.com/

I'm using it since many months and whenever there's some kind of virus on my pen drive, and I insert it in my PC, this USB disk security detects it and allows me to remove it. Nice littly proggy.

USB 2.0 Flash Drive prblem


On first read, the error message indicates that there is a bad section of the flash memory card in your pen drive. We call these areas, sectors. A utility in Windows, called ScanDisk, which you may be familiar with can scan and then mark the sector as bad and then allow data to be written again.

However, this may be a fatal error and render the flash drive unusable. I'll have to ask you to check a few things to make a final judgement.

First, when you insert the pen drive into a usb port, does Windows recognize the drive by making the familiar tone or do you get an error message on insert?

Thanks for taking a few minutes to answer these questions. I'm afraid I will only have more until we can determine if you have a usable pen drive or not.

Just so you know, this pen drive has a lifetime warranty so it will be replaced and I can provide you with the web site address for doing that should it come to this.

Regards,
Worldvet
