Stuck at "Select a Media". Help needed!

#1 Post by Klagen » 17 Mar 2013, 19:28

Hey everyone,

I've got a 4GB usb stick with some valueable files on them, and i'd really love to recover them.

This morning when i turned on my mac, I got the following error:
The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer.

The option to repair the disk in Apples own software doesn't work - Almost every button is grey'ed out, and as far as i can see, the partition is lost.

Anyway, after an hour on the internetz, I came across Testdisk, and gave it a go - But when i reach the point where i have to select a media, it stops responding. Well, I choose Disk1 (Which is the ID of the usb stick), hit enter and nothing happends. I can't move up or down in the menu or anything, it just stops responding.

Any help with this?
