Well yesterday when one of the girls in my research group tried transferring a file to my USB stick, her laptop couldn't recognise my USB stick either, and neither would one of the IC computers! I tried three computers at home and none of them would work as well! They all said there was no media in the drive!
I can't remember how much of my USB stick I had backed up, so I could well have lost a lot of my work from the past year! Arrrgghhh!!!
I ended up buying a new USB stick after class today before my Dessert Club meeting. I was going to buy an iPod Touch (and started to get an urge to buy the Samsung Galaxy S...but...one thing at a time...) but they haven't come in yet!
