Lexar 8GB... | Answered on Jan 11, 2014

What device wrote the files to the card? Was it a digital still camera, video camera etc.

Also, have you tried to repair the disk using CHKDSK (Windows PC) or Disk Utility (Mac)

Click Device Manager from the returned list.
Click Disk Drives from the list of hardware
Right-click the USB external hard drive with the issue, and click Uninstall.
After the hard drive is uninstalled, unplug the USB cable.
Wait for 1 minute and then reconnect the USB cable. The driver should automatically load
Check for the USB drive in Windows Explorer

To remove write protection:

Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter. This will open the registry editor.

If using a PC, considering you have the USB driver installed (perform windows update first and install any suggested/required updates), plug in the flash drive, open the windows explorer, locate the flash drive, right mouse click on the name of the drive, a window should appear and select format with a left button click to execute.

The thumb drive you have came already formatted and ready to use. It will read as a DISK because it works the same as a CD or DVD disc. A formatted flash drive is set up at the factory and ready to be used by the new owner. Just copy what you want to move from the computer to the flash drive. When you want to remove data from the flash drive, simply DELETE doing the same as you would on your computer PC or Laptop.

can you please confirm whether you can see the drive under 'My computer' or not? If you do and you said the files aren't that important, you can choose to reformat it through right click -> properties

Lexar Media... | Answered on Dec 11, 2013

Assuming you are connecting these to a computer to delete stuff.... Once you open the drive right click the file or folder you are trying to delete and choose properties. Once properties opens you will see "read only" make sure the box is not highlighted or checked ... if it is un-check or UN-highlight it by clicking the box. then try to delete the file. Hope that helps.

With a pc or mac you should be able to drag and drop or copy and paste as you would when copying any file or folder.

You may need to try some photo recovery software to rescue the pictures, here are some for your option. You may not recover all the pictures, but will recover most of them.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac
Both programs are able to recover pictures, videos and music files.
Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card or stick in case the original lost files are overwritten.

you can recover the data by steps blow
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download data recovery software, recommended one is asoftech data recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
4. Install and open asoftech data recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Next' button to start scanning process which will find your data.
