Suggest you try a different USB port and possibly a different computer. Didn't say what version of Windows you are using (if windows). Windows Xp is older and may not have the drivers needed to see the device. Go to the vendors web site and see if they have drivers for your product. Helps to include Make and Model number of any product you are asking about to help with solutions.

SOURCE: bent lexar secure II usb drive - how to recover data?

I would suggest using a program like data rescue:
They have a trial version which you can use to at least tell you if the files are recoverable - to recover the files you will likely have to pay for the product, but at $29 it's probably worth it for your information!
