I have seen this many times, most of the time it's because the index file was writing or cleaning itself when you removed it. This is what the "EJECT" is when you right click. As a matter of course, you should always 'eject' the media before removing it. (It doesn't physically pop the media out, it really should be called "Shut Down Media XXXXX" So in most cases, there's nothing you can do except send it off to a data recovery service and be prepared to shell out a bunch of money.

That device uses the standard USB storage driver in Windows. Try the device in a working Windows 7 machine. It will mount or you will see a message about formatting the drive. If it mounts your Vista is corrupted and needs fixing/reloading. If windows 7 wants to reformat the USB device, the USB device is likely corrupted and the data is lost. Or is could have been formatted for a Mac and cannot be read directly on Windows.

PS - $80 for a 4 gb USB drive is too much in the current market. You should be able to replace it for $10 or less.

I'm afraid your SD card was internally damaged by the sea water. They're not hermetically sealed. Sorry about that outcome.

Not knowing the model # makes it difficult to give you a difinitive answer. Kingston's support docs all say that after x mny failed logins the device will have to be formatted.
The default # of failed logins seem to be 10.
I think you're out of luck.

Try putting the ram in another computer and see if you have the same problem. If the issue goes away one of the sticks of ram might not have been fully seated. If you get the same result you have a bad stick of ram. Go to the manufactures website and download ram checker and install it (free software). This will help diagnose your problem. If you get an error code write it down so you can give it to the manufacturer which indicates which error problem you have... If it turns out that you have a bad stick of ram contact the manufacturer and they may send you another stick of ram. Some manufacturers have a lifetime warranty on their ram. Hope this helps.

First, the basics...
There are three kinds of SD cards (SD, SDHC and SDXC). Not all computers are designed to accept all three types. SD cards can store up to 2GB of data, SDHC can store up to 64GB of data, and SDXC cards can store up to 2TB (terabytes) of data. If you are unsure which types of cards your laptop or computer will accept, visit the manufacturer's web site and look for the specifications for your particular model to be sure. It's tempting to want to buy an SD card with a large data capacity, but it's wasted money if your computer will not work with the high capacity card.

Make sure you have inserted the card correctly (and fully). The card is 'keyed' (with a notch in one corner) so it should only fit into the SD card slot one way *easily*. Obviously you can try to force the SD card into the slot the wrong way, but the position which goes in the easiest is probably the right way. Some devices have a symbol beside the slot indicating which way the card should be inserted. Be careful, though. It is natural to think the the card should be inserted with the manufacturer's label facing up, but I've seen devices where the card should be inserted 'upside-down', contrary to what I thought.

If you are using a Windows computer with a 'recent' version of the operating system (Windows Vista or later), the computer should recognize the card (as a newly attached piece of hardware) and show the card as a new drive letter when you open the Windows Explorer program to view your files and folders.

If the card is new, it should be formatted already and can be used immediately, BUT...your computer may need to have a driver program (software that enables the use of specific hardware items). My laptop, for example, uses a driver from Ricoh to enable the SD card slots, and that driver had to be downloaded from the HP support site and installed before my SD card slots would recognize SD cards.

If you know you have the correct SD card device driver installed, have an SD card that will work with your computer but still do not see the card in Windows Explorer, you can check in the Windows Device Manager to check its status. You can also use the Disk Management features of Windows to check what drive letter has been assigned to the drive. If the SD card has been assigned a drive letter already used by another drive, then it will not be available in Windows Explorer.

If you think any of these last problems I mentioned are part of your issue, reply here and I can see if I can help you further.
