Re: lost data
Ive had this happen to a 2 gig flash drive which had my Photography final presentation on it 2 days before the due date. I'm not saying this it the solution, but try plugging it into another computer. The problem with my flash drive ended up being that somehow, someone went into Device manager, and click 'Do Not Use This Device', So everytime it was plugged it, it was recognized, but not used.
Just an idea.
