data loss on USB flash drive

Specs: Windows XP

Hi,

I had a working USB flash disk this morning, but I accicentally pulled it out of the PC (Windows XP Pro), before I copied off the files. Now every PC I tried asks if I want to format it and I noticed the drive is marked as "RAW".

I can see it in both explorer and in the disk management, but I cannot access it.

Is there any way I can restore the partition without formatting it? I really need some files from it.

Thanks.

Consult data recovery experts they will fix the error and will retrieve the data even if they need to format them for any reason.

The flash drive (or external drive, or memory card reader) must be plugged into a port it will actually work in.

How to tell if the flash drive (or external drive, or memory card reader) is properly recognized as a hardware device, even if you can't access it's data.
Programs you can try to recover your data, if that's okay.

The most frequent reason people can no longer access the data on a USB flash drive, USB External drive, or a memory card on a computer
