Hello,

I have data on a usb stick which I need to access but cannot. Drive on pc is okay as it is recognising other usb sticks. Is there anyway that I can get to data?

If you plug your usb drive into a working usb slot, then it should show up in the start>computer>Devices with removable storage.


This is assuming your working with windows 7.

I would make sure the usb slot your using is working, and if it is, I would check
control panel>hardware and sound>devices and printers, there you should see everything that is plugged in to your computer, printers, mouse, keyboard etc

Check to see if it shows up in there.

Also:

When you plug and unplug that usb in, does your computer make a noise, like dun dun?

Probably corrupted. It means its broken. It's unfixable without losing all the data.
