I mentioned your happy news to my husband, whom you met on the rpm tour. He thought you were already married.

Also, have you tried it on another system at work? Or made sure you've restarted both of your computers? (Silly to ask, but it has to be asked.)


You can try the following: first step is to gently apply light pressure to either side of the flash drive while it is inserted.

Make sure the sound on your computer is on so you will hear the “ding” if the connection is momentarily reestablished.

If you do get an indication, you can try to hold your flash drive in the position that causes it to show up.

While you hold it in place, ask someone to access the drive and save your files to your computer.

This requires a steady hand and if you have a lot of data on your flash drive, you might have to hold it in the same position for a long time.


Your only other option is to send it to a reputable data recovery company like FlashDrivePros for a free analysis. Toll Free 888-806-6567


I figure that there is probably some physical damage to the connection area. Although I can't see anything. It seems to sit rather loosely in the port. I did re-start both computers, of course. Also, at work, it started to read and then konked out. I'll have to try it again at work tomorrow and see what happens.

I just emailed the company to set up a trouble ticket. We'll see what they have to say.

Sparky, thanks for your help.

SWMBO and I were engaged for just under 2 years. We waited until I finished grad school and she finished law school. Got married before she got her Bar results but after everything else was settled.

We were together 6 yrs or so before we tied the knot. Planning a wedding while finishing med school was not overly enjoyable. I believe we bought/closed on a house, graduated from med school together, and got married, all within a 2 wk time. Thankfully, we'll never have to do that again.

Tomorrow will be 14 yrs!

We were married 2 weeks after our first baby popped, so I guess that means we were engaged for 8.5 months

Congrats! Mine is Friday and will be five years, which when you consider that my wife married ME, is the equivalent to 70 married years. We've been together 11 years though.

Congratulations!

I had an 18 month engagement and only gave the ring back once with a "You have one week to control your mother clause attached". He did and we just celebrated 18 years last Monday.

A longer engagement can give you time to work out a lot of kinks, and 99% of them are neither the bride or groom.

You don't look old enough to have been married for 18 years. Congrat't. When you get around to opening the port, let me know how it was.

I'm so sorry, I meant to tell you he loved the Port. I told him it was to take to his big poker games when the wine geeks attend. I'll let you know how it goes over.

Thanks guys. We had a good trip back, but lots to do when we got home after nearly 2 weeks. Got a bike ride in on Monday, went back to work, planned the funeral mass and now just sipping some wine before dinner. Dinner with some nearby friends the first few days back.

And much thanks to Sparky. The password cracker in your message worked. And daughter was smart enough to use the same password on both, so no need to get a drive to get into the net book. Now to find the articles that she was writing.

Things are going OK. Next big hump will be visitation and funeral on 6/7 and 6/8. Thanks in advance for the moral support from my friends here.

Made it home safely after transporting 30 cases of wine to long term storage 800 miles away....

It was a ton of work to inventory and label each box, then update cellar tracker, load, unload, etc... Still have to update cellar tracker with the updated locations of the bottles remaining at home.

Trying to eliminate the Eurocave (8 case) and second fridge (4 case).

Going to finally relax and have a glass of wine tomorrow night, just in time to leave town on Fri for NorCal #17.

There's too much people don't know about this case. This article goes over briefly more of the numbers related with that case, but you should see the pictures from her burns and surgery. There are just so many ways that McDonalds was seriously in the wrong with that ordeal.

stupid tablet. the good news is that your data is likely just fine and you can get it off with recovery software, which I have on my other laptop and I don't know where it is. I think I recommended it to someone else once though and it worked for them, Doc O maybe?

Linux is an open source operating system that may read your data just fine. I seem to recall you have Macs at home and you likely use PC's at school. If you have Macs at work also, get ahold of a Windows machine and try it there. If that doesn't work let me know and I'll try to find that old laptop and find out what software I used. For us it was a corrupted memory card on a camera.

according to much research I did a year ago about Coffee, it should be brewed between 190 and 205, but NOT held that high, you wanna hold it closer to 130-140 for optimal taste for no longer than 15 minutes in an open top carafe. good link by the way.

My wife has a few sips, and that's it, which leaves the rest of the bottle for me. That works well on the weekend, but not on a night when I have to operate 12 hrs the next day.

And '99 as in our anniversary year.

You are good: we do have Macs at home. I have an HP at school. The travel drive company recommended this: A free utility for OSX can be downloaded here - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/data-recovery-free/id509071310?mt=12 and
the most popular data recovery company is Drive Savers Data Recovery - http://www.drivesaversdatarecovery.com/

I don't know if the utility can read that which cannot be seen. But I'll probably give it a try tomorrow. The other problem is that my Mac barely registers that a travel drive is in its port. I don't consider a nano second good recognition! I'll keep you guys posted. Thanks for all the help.

That would leave a lot of wine for one person! Agreed. What time do you start operating? 12 hrs is also a lot of time to concentrate. Thank you for all that you do.

That's why we rarely open a bottle during the week! Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Sparky drinks more wine than me! :gasp:

Start at 7:30a, and if I finish by 6, I'm happy. My body will be more tired than my mind.
