Question about PC Desktops
Your USB drive has an internal failure making it unrecoverable. I am most convinced of this since Linux could not detect it. A pendrive is a handy little thing, but you should make a habit of backing up your files on another medium. Hindsight is still 20/20. And while HP may replace the drive, they will not recover your files for you. Sorry.
If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

'd also suggest that you download and install all available Windows Updtaes, if you haven't done so already, and also download and install any available motherboard chipset drivers for your system or motherboard.
Also try to connect the pen drive to the USB slots at the back of your computer...
Some of the Windows updates correct USB problems......
If this does't help, you can for sure correct this problem by troubleshooting procedures as given in the following website:

What Operating System are you using now? Try looking your pendrive in the Disk Management.
Go to Start, Control Panel-> Performance and Maintenance->Administrative Tools. Double click Computer Management icon -> Expand Storage, click Disk Management. Find on the right corner bottom if the removable disk is detected. If it does, Click Make Partition as Active / Reformat.
*Drop me a comment if it is detected or not. I'll be waiting. I will assist you.

Tips for a great answer:
*See if the USB port is enabled in bios.
*Goto Run> Services> Plug and play > Properties(Right Click)> See if it is set 'Automatic'.
*Try disabling USB2 in your bios, restart your operative system, and if still not detected your pen drive, try making OS detect new hardware or hardware changes (to crange usb2 drivers to usb1 drivers).
*If the above steps don't work for you, it might be a driver conflict. Try installing the Transcend USB driver from the manufacturer site, and see if that works for you.(Check in Device Manager, If there is a conflict after installing the new driver : Rollback Driver).
Please let me know the feedback on this.
