Oh heck, you've already done a registry edit, perhaps inadvisably, but it's done. Maybe as part of the edit you made a backup? Well anyway, I'm saying if you know exactly where and what you deleted then just write it back in. If not, don't do it.

Depending on how well you've kept up with creating new restore points, choosing to go back may end up taking you w-a-a-y back, back to before some software installs or OS and driver updates.

Did you back up the registry before you changed it ? Jump drives are very unreliable. See if it shows up in Disk management. Try a different usb port (back of the computer).

Flashdrives should only be used as temporary transfer/storage media. They are notoriously unreliable and you should have your important stuff backed up in a couple of ways including burned to CD/DVD. Try the drive in a different USB port and a different PC as suggested above.

You need to do a restore point to a time before this edit.

Does that flash work on another computer? Does any other usb work on this computer?

If you know the exact keys and data you deleted you can edit it all back in with regedit.

You need to try the drive in another computer or the phone or camera from whence it came to see if you can see the pics then.

If it doesn't work anyplace else then throw it away.

If you want you can try testdisk on it but I doubt you can recover files.


Don't mess with any registry edits. Too great a chance for mistakes. Just restore point it to put a good copy back on.
