Why does it need formatting?

Plug it in and copy data off before formatting? I'm assuming there is a reason that won't work that you forgot to tell us....

It's most probably that every time he plugs the USB stick in, the computer tells him,"This Device Needs to be Formatted"....
And if he gets that message every time, there is no way to save the data, you need to realize that it's been lost.... and move on. Get a new USB stick.
