Default Usb Issues

I put some photos and word documents on my 3G usb to transfer to another computer, but when i try and copy them off the usb, my computer freezes and i cant access any of the files. Ive tried doing this on 3 computers and the problem occurred on all of them. does anyone have any ideas how i can get the files off?

Sounds like the files are corrupt. You might have to format the Drive and get the files again. I've had it happen to me a couple of times. and that always worked for me...

this should work... it should see the USB as a drive...

you can try this for the system that had them, as long as it's not formatted, you should be ok...
