: : : I have an HP V100 flash drive with lots of backup files on it. Using Win XP, it shows up as drive F, but soon after I open the folder, it disappears from the list of mounted drives. I am unable to copy any files off of it. Any ideas?

: : Sounds like the boot sector is damaged. There are some freeware programs that claim to be able to create a new boot sector.

: Okay. Any suggestions on which one to try?

Yeah, try Minitools Partition Wizard. That program can create a new boot sector for you.
