My USB stick used to work fine, but suddenly it didn't open any more when I plugged it in and when I try to open the disc in "my computer" everytime an "open with" window pops up ("choose the program you want to use to open the file"). I cannot get to the contents of the stick. Please help me out.

Well you may consider puppy linux or for that matter any linux os should do.What you have is a limitation of windows. In linux you mount drive & at that point you will be able to see the content. My choice of puppy linux is that it is free burns to a cd , boots a machine & believe it or not with the correct thinking can resolve many window problems like malware & virus & spyware where windows cant remove them the puppy jumps in like the attack dog it is, don't be fooled by his cute look he means business. Just a note when you mount the usb you also need to mount the hard drive be careful of which hard drive you need the one with windows folder to copy your data over drag is possible with a list choose copy...
Thank you
Thank you
