Odds are not good. You can google usb recovery for software links that may help

This might help (FreeUndelete):

You have to send any undeletes elsewhere (HD would do in this instance).
Note that you use the double dots at the top to move back towards
the root if necessary.

EDIT:
Ooops. As per next post, above won't help if you can't even see the stick.


What's the time?

You have to detect the memory stick first. This isn't a deleted files question.

Guess I didn't read the question carefully enough - you are of-course quite correct.

Seems stick is corrupted in such a way that nothing can even detect it. You could clean its edge connectors with a pencil eraser but that's probably far too hopeful as it fails in more than one device.

post-3 refers to some software that may help you recover access to the data - at least to allow you extract/copy to alternative media?

may need to go into disk managment and reformat, but you will loose all data on the disk...
