Thumb drive not found
My computer does not recognize the thumb drive I just plugged in. Up to now no problem. When I jiggle it I hear it beep and then an error message came on quickly and then went off stating that the thumb drive appears to be damaged and can't be read.

Is there any suggestions of how I can get it to work at least one more time so I can transfer the data to another drive?

Any help will be appreciated

Try another machine. But you're probably sunk.
