Right Click MY COMPUTER ->Manage ->Device Manager. Now click on the disk drives option in the right window. You can find your usb drive with red coloured X mark on it. Now right click on that and go for properties. you find General tab in which device usage is found at the bottom. go to that and click Use this Device(Enable). That's it Your Problem is Solved. Contact 9533197368 if solved. ThanQ and Bye.

Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the USB Drive. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.
Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

It sounds as if you have a faulty USB drive, depending on your Operating System, MS Windows / Linux, uninstall the USB drivers under device manager which could be found in the control panel on Windows XP/Vista/7, restart the computer and reinstall the driver's if they don't install back by themselves. But before you start try using your thumb drive on another computer. If you get the same problem, try to reformat the thumb drive, but before you do, be aware that all your information will be lost, and will not be able to be recovered without the appropriate recovery tools.
