    If you tried it on several systems, there is a hardware issue with the board/USB connection. Have a tech look at it. As a aside to this, just like all the other times we see data loss issues, do not store single copies of your files on removable media, or anyplace for that matter. If you had a copy of this data you will not have any issues now.

    That error message usually comes up when the computer can see the USB drive electronics but can't read the flash memory on the drive. You can try Recuva or Testdisk to see if it can read the drive but that is not likely to work in your case. Or bring it to a data recovery place and see what they say.
  4. If that device slipped out of the usb port during a write session - I'm betting with hang_the_nine that it's definitely hardware.
  5. alright, thanks everyone
