Good day, I saw there was some discussions regarding this topic but I still can't find a solution to my problem. I'm using Windows XP professional 2003. I was working on MS Word and saving to my usb drive. When I tried to save to it again the drive just disappeared from My Computer. From there on no computer can read it. When you plug it in it just does not show. The information stored on the drive is very very important and I need to retrieve it urgently. I think it must be the driver, but the drive is so old I can't see what make it is. Looks like Gaigin or something gin.
