Solved: removable disk error
I have a HP laptop and have been using a flash disk to save some files. I have accessed a few times. I put it in tonight and the box pops up for me to click on but when i click on it It says please insert a disk into removable disk G but the disk is already been put in. I hope someone can help I don't want to lose the info on the disk.
Thanks

See what is says in Disk Management. Try changing the drive letter.

Right-click Computer > Manage > Disk Management.

I checked disk management it says
Disk C healthy
HP recovery disk D healthy
Disk online
Disk 1 Removable G, no media
CD Rom 0, DVD E, no media
I did change the drive letter from F to G
I just right clicked on the disk 1 G and under manager it says device working properly

Do you always use the "Safe to remove " icon when you remove your thumb drives from the computer?

I didn't know there was a safe to remove icon so I guess noe I just pull the flash disk out. Did I damage it by doing that. I have done it many other times like that.

The odds are yes. If nothing else the data was damaged.
The icon will be in the "Notifcation area".

Try it on another machine, if you have the same problem, I would say NO.
BUT, I have been known to be wrong more than once.

What is the make and model of this thumb drive?
Some OEM's have data recover steps.

I find nothing at http://www.usmodular.com/MCE/default/0/product/3113

Is this what yours looks like?
If so it has a 5 year warranty!
