    When i plugged in my USB to check the Backup of my PSP files, instead of the name it just says "Removable Disk" and when i open it all the files are gone!

    Is there a way to get my files back, or is the USB corrupted? and will it still store data?

    When you remove your Flash Drive, do you just unplug it,or do you safely remove using the little green arrow in the start bar by the clock?

    --- Sometimes you can corrupt files by not removing the device safely. ---

    You could try to restart the computer and see if that works.

    2nd, you could go into the device manager and try to update the driver for the Flash drive.

    Let me know if your still having problems.

    if you are sure the files were on there in a usable state it may be worth trying a data recovery program, see if that can find them.
