Malfunctioning Memory stick
« on: July 31, 2011, 12:47:15 AM »
I know I'm probably searching in vain but

is there anyway to fix or get the information from a malfunctioning memory stick?

I am not sure what kind of information you are looking for, but this is the program that I have been referred to in the past. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memtest86
It's been years since I had to use myself though. The link is at the bottom.

The best program I or Mr have ever been able to recover files with is PhotoRec. There are lots of them out there but between our 15+ years experience with this stuff, this has been the one we always turn to in those horrible cases where files get lost/corrupted.

I could be misunderstanding the problem, but the OP seems to be talking about malfunction RAM not permanent storage like a harddrive... yes? If you meant one of those flash memory sticks, aka usb sticks, then I apologize I thought you were talking about a stick of RAM.

It's a USB thumb drive/memory stick.  I had been using it all all day and the last time I put it in the port to store something on it my laptop couldn't access it.
