Hi Mavis, I tried. It does not help. What can be the other means to retrieve this vital information.

... does the laptop have @ least service pack two installed?

... tried popping it into another usb port?

... or pull it out and stick it back in a few times (hot swapping) sometimes does the trick.

... if not bootup with a live cd: http://www.livecdlist.com/

... which may find the usb device for you to copy the content to main drive, cd etc.

Nothing works. I'll go to some data recovery expert. Just wanted to know if there is a possibility that some data will be lost forever? or will I be lucky enough to recover everything
