How come my computer wont recognize my jump drive?

by on May 18, 2009

Q: Is there any way to retrieve data from a “dead” jump drive. Well, I don’t know if it is actually dead. When I place the jump drive into the USB port, the light flashes two or three times but the computer does not recognize the drive. What can I do, if anything?

Hopeless, confused, frustrated, and saddened that all of my information may be LOST.

    I’d suggest trying the usb drive on another computer, and making regular backups of your data.
