  1. Hello all,

    I have a TECHNIKA MP3-player 1 GB USB flash memory. I saved some music files on it as well as excel and word document files. I was using it yesturday on my Desktop and it was working properly. When I used today at a university desktop, it opened but all the saved files were not there. I tried to open it at my Desktop again but i had the same problem, although when you can play the music files from the flash directly. The flash memory was named and now when you try to open, the name doesn't show and I guess it is opened with a different drive.

    Would anybody suggest a solution for this problem plz !!!

    Just to be clear here

    You have a TECHNIKA MP3-player 1 GB USB flash drive
    Which has music and documents on it

    Opening at the university desktop, All files have vanished.
    Re-opening on your original (Home?) computer shows no files as well.

    Also the drive name has also changed
    ---

    Other than trying another computer (which you have done ? )
    And opening your drive manually from My Computer (Right Click - Open)
    It sounds as though your 1 GB USB flash drive has been wiped.
    This can happen if the drive was being used extensively (ie music listening)
    And if the drive was full - or close to full.

    I would suggest that you do not use this drive for important documents in future as it may have been damaged.
