Upload the files to the jumpdrive. Remove jumpdrive from computer 1 and insert in computer 2. When computer 2 recognizes the jumpdrive, copy the files to a directory folder where you want to save the music. Unplug the jumpdrive.
Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly. Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove. To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive. If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: - Data and Digital Photo Recovery www.artplus.hr/adapps/eng/dpr.htm www.CardRecovery.com

Have you tried it on other pc's? It may be a bad usb port on your pc, Or, it may have gone bad.Try it on several different pc's and try other jumpdrives on your pc. If all is ok, the jumpdrive is bad, all data is lost. This happens sometimes when you unplug a jumpdrive with out turning it off in windows first.
the directory is corrupted. when your computer accesses the drive, it knows some things, like how big it was. but it does not know where the data is. it does not see anything that tells it what is on the drive, thus the empty window. not a serviceable unit if the mfg will not give you a fix it program. sorry for the news. mark
I had same problem occur yesterday out of blue. Working one day - not the next. Is data recovery possible?
