512MB KINGSTON DATA TRAVELER BECOMES SKYMEDI USB DRIVE USB DEVICE..PLS HELP


I think that I have a similar problem (and a potential solution)

1. My thumb drive is 4GB "super talent", and I have used it for about 2years

2. Suddenly, it show up as "REMOVABLE" SKYMEDI USB DEVICE (!)

3. I tried "google" for answer... and did not get further

4. Finally, I righ click on "my computer" -> select "manage" the "computer management" MMC windows open

4.1 I tried the "Disk Management" and it still can not connect to it

4.2 I clicked on "Removable Storage" ... and then I "SKYMEDI..."

4.3. I righ click on the device and select "Task" -> "Free" (thinking ... what can be worst!)

4.4 ... sunddenly ... I see my drive back ... with everything on it....


I hope that this help (... I am guessing that the "removable storage" manager locked this device somehow)

Regards
