Hi

I am running a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista.

A Kingston memory stick I have been using for a couple of months is now giving me trouble.

When I plug it in, it is recognised, and shows up in My Computer, but with no content. When I click on Properties, however, it tell me that I have 2.4Gb in 4,313 files on it.

The drive is also present in Disk Management.

File options are set to "show hidden".

I can also run AV scans on the drive without problem.

Any suggests for what I try next?

Just something to "try". Puppy Linux live cd found here: http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview and Getting Started.htm Download Puppy, burn it to a iso, Plug your memory stick in, now boot to Puppy live cd(make sure the cd/dvd rom is first in boot order). See if your memory stick is recognized(it should be on the bottom left of the screen), if it is click on it(one click), see if you can see your files.
