Have you tried reformatting it? please be advised that you will lose your file if you reformat it. but that could help resolve your issue.
Hope this helps.

Its most likely that the device is dead and the data is not recoverable, no software will work as it does not show as a drive. You could send it to a data recovery expert like LC Technology, they helped me on a similar issue.

In the explorer make sure you can view hidden files. (Tools>folder options)
Check the file sizes of each file by mousing over. Add them all up manually. Is this the size of the disk ?
If the total size is not the full storage size copy over to the PC> format the drive and drop them back on.

There will be 3 reasons of this problems.
If you not not connects this drive properly to system it will show drive property 00 bytes. If you has set up password for this drive then this problem will appeared OR drive is damaged & stopped working. If you trying to connect memory card then change your card reader.
If this flash drive in warranty period then go to authorized service center & give it for replacement.

Tips for a great answer:
Plug the flash drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.
Wait for Windows to recognize the system.
Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.
Open the drive on your computer.
Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using
Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.
Transfer files to the flash drive.
Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.
Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.
Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.
Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."
Close the windows and directory locations when finished.
Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.
Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.
Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.
Close the windows and files when finished
hope this helps
