This is cause by a virus or something , first thing that you can do here is to back up all the files from your pen drive and then one everything is already back up you can go ahead and format the drive, just right click the pen drive and select format....that should;d fix the problem,,,,

My kingston 16GB pen-drive soft ware has lost how to dowload new software


if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
Windows 7
First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.

2GB HP pendrive TDMG12C4M2GB083100325


That does not look like virus, probably the solid state disk inside your memory stick has gone faulty.

Try formatting it again, ticking th "complete formatting" option and not the quick one.
If it does not work the memory is faulty.

If you bought this memory in recent times, go back to the retailer and tell them the memory was defective.

If it is a good brand memory stick (eg. Kingston, Sony, SD etc.) call factory, if it is less than one year old they will send you a replacement, if it is older than this, just take a chance and call them the same, if they accept it is a factory fault they will send a replacement the same.
