Question about Memory Cards & USB Flash Drives
Saved a file onto the USB and left it in the slot and when tried to open the removable drive, it doesn't show any folder or files. it says 0 objects and 0 bytes. but when i choose the properties to see how full it is, it's almost full. and when i tried to open a new folder in the usb drive, it wouldn't let me. what can i do to retreive the files. thanks!!

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.

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.
Happy to help you.

1. Right click My Computer and select Manage.
2. Open the Device Manager and find your USB drive under the Disk Drives heading.
3. Right click the drive and select Properties.
4. Choose Policies tab and select the "Optimize for performance" option.
6. Open My Computer.
7. Select Format on the flash drive.
Hurrah there is NTFS option available now
8. Choose NTFS in the File System dropdown box.
9. Device Formatting is completed.
Important: To remove a device safely without data loss use a "safely remove hardware" procedure or Eject function from Windows Explorer.
