I have a Patriot, 4 GB X-mini drive that has worked for nearly a year. However, when I tried to access it yesterday from My Computer, it gave me the following message:
Please insert a disk into removable disk (F:)
I went to properties through My Computer, and the drive came up as:
File System: Unknown
Used Space: 0 bytes
Free Space: 0 bytes
Capacity: 0 bytes
I tried to run an error check, but it keeps giving me this message:
The disk check could not be performed because Windows cannot access the disk
I don't have any idea where to go from here, but due to the nature of some of the files I cannot access, it is important that I recover the data as soon as possible. Any help would be appreciated.
If this is relevant, I was operating an HP laptop with OS Windows Vista Home Premium at the time, and the error occurred shortly after a driver
update proceeded to pop up on my screen.
