thank you for this thread....
i have recovered my 8 gig SSD
....however it didn't work on my 32 gig Kingston SSD
...it gave me a message saying the card could not be reinitialized...whatever that means.
i did have windows 7 installed on that 32 gig SSD
card...could that have something to do with why it didn't work?
the 8 gig card it worked on had win xp on it.
i have another 8 gig card out of a mini 9 that i replaced for a friend of mine...thought i would try it on that one. had the card labeled as 'bad' but never really threw it away. tried it on that one but i can't even get the usb to boot cause there is a password on the SSD
card. no one knows what it is, but i guess i'll have to throw that one cause there is no way to get past the password. the password is not on the computer but on the card itself.
