    Default Flash drive woes

    My Imation 512MB drive just crashed on me last minute before project submission.

    It keeps on saying "please insert disk into drive F"

    Now to computers my flash drive is now a 'disk drive'. How do I solve this problem?
    Any help very much appreciated!

    Your flash drive corrupted already.
    Try to recover your files using some recovery programs.
    If not, a format to the drive can make it useable again.

    Hmm... try using another USB port or another computer?

    If really cannot, then buy a new one lor.

    Completely un readable. Can't format, can't defragmentate, can't cleanup.

    No backup on your project?

    Have you try using another computer to read it?
