I personally wish I'd bought another brand of memory stick given the problems I'm having with this memory stick.
There are HD video files on this drive that I recorded of my band recording in the studio and the files cannot be replaced.
I tried to format it, full and quick. Windows cannot format the drive EVERY time. I tried recuva to see if I could dig the files out that way. It found them, but there were always errors getting them off it. Now, It will not display in my computer. I am determined to get these files off any way I can. Paying if necessary. is there anything I can do at my end to restore files? I even tried removing and adding partitions. Nothing. It's recognized when inserted and the format prompt comes up, but little else

Wow. The only option you haven't tried to destroy data on a flash drive is smashing it with a hammer.

That should have been the 1st option you tried.

At this point, unlikely. You can try the following link:
Important files = Backed up files

I thought, as I couldn't get access at all without a format, I could format the drive and then use a recovery program
to bring any files back. (little or no chance, probably)
Sorry if I came across as really thick. Seemed liked the only option.
