When trying to read a Sandisk 16Gb Class 2 Micro SD card (on my Win7 PC through a USB reader) it will show up briefly but as soon as I try to copy any files the drive itself will disappear, meaning I can't save any of the data (or pics) from it, so I'm looking for a way to keep the drive visible to my PC so I can save the data. (The card comes from my Android HTC Desire HD which randomly dismounted itself this morning and now reports itself as 'damaged' in the phone). Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!

Why does the motorola branded micro usb cable that came with my droid phone both charge *AND* transfer data, but generic micro usb cables will only charge the phone? [more inside]

Need to protect sensitive data on laptops taken out to the field. Something like Bitlocker, but for XP maybe? [more inside]

Is there a simple utility that tests data writing speeds? I have a new external device which purports to be USB 2.0 (as is my Win XP computer, I think), but just seems... slow. For example, 3.5GB just took 59 minutes to copy over from my HD to the external HD. How can I speed things up?

Can anyone recommend a company/service in the UK to recover data from a USB key?
