    I used my thumb drive to copy a file from my XP computer and carry it to my wife's Windows 7 laptop.

    The files were self executing set-up files for her printer (exe). When I plugged the thumb drive into her computer it wouldn't read it (Drive requires formating-dialogue box) When I plugged it back into the XP system, I got the same dialog box (Drive is not Formated),

    What happened? Is there any way to salvage the one, almost 2, gigabytes of files on my thumb drive?
