    Help me, please! I need your help!
    The Windows 7 asks me to format my connected USB flash drive before using? But, I simply want to transfer all the stored files to my computer. Now, all of them become inaccessible. And the formatting process will also erase everything on this drive. That’s not what I want. So, I need your help to transfer these files safely without formatting? Is that possible? What should I do next? Any idea would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    and when you say "no" what does it do? or it simply doesn't allow you to view your files at all? Get a linux liveCD, boot to it and transfer files that way.
