    There's not much you can do except trying it with different USB ports/computers. If that fails then I'm afraid it's almost certainly dead

    (This seems to happen a lot to memory sticks, so in future try make a backup of your work on the computer itself, and perhaps use online storage too.)

    Not much you can do, the same happened to me. Install the Google Cloud plugin and all office documents will be automatically backed up online when you save.

    Well I tried it in other ports and in my brothers laptop and it didn't work. So I've taken it into a computer tech shop where they are in the process of taking it apart and reading the stuff of the chip. They are pretty much certain they will be able to get the stuff by doing that. I feel so stupid now though.
