    I have a "Flash Voyager" (http://www.corsairmemory.com/products/voyager/default.aspx) Corsair USB Flash Drive and suddenly one day, it stopped working.

    Now, whenever I plug it into any USB port, Windows pops up a "USB Device Not Recognized" error. I have tried it with several Windows XP computers and it is the same.

    The device does not show up as a drive in My Computer or Windows Explorer. When I open up Device Manager and look under "USB Controllers", there's just a item called "Unknown Device."

    I have years of important information stored on that flash drive, and I do not have backups of much of it. I am mostly concerned about being able to copy the data off the drive...is there any way it can be done in this situation?

    Please help!
