Hi all,

When I inserted my memory stick into my macbook pro a message flashed up saying: “The Disk you inserted was not readable by the computer”.

I went online and found some instructions that said to erase it from disk utility, then turn the computer off/on again and the memory stick should be readable.

The memory stick is readable but completely empty! All my work has disappeared!

Is there anyway of getting it back?? I am really worried as it's super important work...

Thanks :)

Hi and welcome,

Sorry to say it's very doughtful, :(did you do a quick erase or secure erase? Might make a difference.

The secure erase takes some time as multiple passed happen.

Hi ,

Thanks for your quick response. i clicked erase, it didn't give me options but i assume it was quick erase as it only took seconds.

hope this is the better option?
