    I'm not sure what language you just typed that in, but from the parts I'm able to read, it sounds like you formatted the drive and now you don't understand why the data is gone.

    Yes, formatting erases it. Why you had to format it, I don't know. Macs can read Windows formatted disks just fine. At any rate, if your Mac won't recognize it now, just format it with a PC.

    no no no no....i put the pen drive in the computer and a dialog box popped up saying initialize.....cancel....and eject...so i initilized it and usually when do that on other drives it ERASES it but then OS X recongnizes it.this time the drive still is not coming up in the finder.
