Question USB Question

Hi Guys!

Just a quick question. I have a 4GB USB key which holds all my college information. While I have everything backed up, there is one document however that I need on it.

What happens is, when I insert it into the USB port, the computer picks it up, and it does show up as a removable disk in My Computer, however when I try to click into it I get the message that says 'Please insert disk into drive X'.

I've tried it on a few computers now and all with the same result. Before when it worked you used to be able to see a little red light on the back of it, but that seems dead now as well.

I suppose it wouldn't be a disaster, it would only cost me a days work but I just said I'd check with you guys first to see if ye knew of anything that could be done for it.

Any help appriciated
Thanks =)
