My SanDisk USB died, can the data be recovered?


Recommended Posts


About a week ago my 2GB SanDisk micro Cruzer died.

Funeral services will be held at the national hub for ...


But seriously, the device is no longer detected by any of the computers I or my family own (Linux, Mac, Windows, FreeBSD, Solaris, OpenSolaris, 32 bit & 64 bit versions of all the previously mentioned Operating Systems, as well as tests on Laptops)

Is there anything you'd suggest to delay the procession?

There is some very important data on the USB, however it is re-creatable, given enough time.

Please recommend a method to recover the data and enable the device to start working again (USB no longer lights up)

Thanks in advance,
