I had such an issue with my 16GB Kingston it just died after 2 month. But usually it comes with at least 5 year warranty. So I returned mine and got new one instead. My luck that I had my files backed up. Try to change your kingston if it's completely undiscovered by your PC. But try it on another PC or Mac first. Good luck!
