The device fails to show up in My Computer and Disk Management. When I attempt to open the drive, I get an error message saying that Windows could not open the drive due to an incorrect function. I believe there is a logical error somewhere in the device. I can also look at most of the registry values. Thanks for helping!

Is there anything important on the drive? What is its size?

There is a ton of important stuff on that drive. The drive size is 2GB.

Try using an archiver tool to backup the files. Then buy a new drive. (USB drives tend to last maybe 2-3yrs.)

*snicker* 2GB isn't a tonne.

My 'dump' USB drive is 8GB
