I have a Centon Electronics 8GB DataStick Pro USB 2.0 and it’s been working for many years. Yesterday when I connected it with my PC, I got the message "Please format your device". I have very important data on it and can't format the card. Any helpful suggestions for me to retrieve the data on it? Thanks very much.
