2161 Pram Message for inaccessible storage device -- fixable?
February 19, 2014 10:51 AM   Subscribe

My Data Traveller has become inaccessible showing up only in my devices and printers window as 2261 Pram, a new term for me. Placing the memory stick in other USB ports not helping and location G:\ seems impenetrable and unchain able as does everything on my storage device. Is there any chance the data is recoverable or has it died on me for good? I usually can fix and recover my own files -- until now...

Try downloading the Ultimate Boot CD. Then boot your computer using it. There is a chance it will see the the drive right away and you just need to copy the data to another drive. If the file table is hosed, it has utilities that can help you recover files, although the names will be lost.
