Five months ago I purchased a 16 gigabyte Crucial flash drive from the Apple Store. Just today, when trying to plug it in, the drive would not mount, let alone give an LED flash. I thought the problem had to do with one of the four connections being broken, so I pried open the flash drive and soldered each of the four connections. That helped a little bit, because now if I hold it the right way I can get the LED to come on for a short instant, but the drive will still not be recognized on the desktop. I have tried this on multiple Macs and one PC, and still cannot find success. I have important papers that are due soon on the drive, and do not care whether or not the usability of the drive is preserved. I just want the data. Is there any way to get the data from the device? Thanks in advance.
