    Hi,

    I have plugged my memory stick into my pc and I cannot read from it. There is no data available on it. I plugged it into another pc and still nothing. Help. How do I retrieve the data?

    Plug in the device to the XP machine.
    Click Start> Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Computer Management> Disk Management

    Does it show up there?

    What are its properties?

    Does the system show it is formatted and ready to use?

    If there was data on it, and now its gone, you can recover the files with Active File Recovery.
