Situation1: My 32GB flash drive stopped work and said please insert a disk in removable disk when I was copying some files from it.

But I was worried about the data on the drive. I still have some important files on the flash drive and I need to get them back.
Situation2: Windows says you need to format the disk in drive before you can use it when I insert my 32GB SanDisk USB flash drive into the USB port of my computer. I don’t think there is something wrong with the USB port or my flash drive because it can still be detected by my computer. But I have no idea what is wrong. I need a solution to fix the not formatted error on my flash drive and recover the files on it.
