This seems to be a problem as a result of auto run virus which has probably infected your flash drive, an autorun virus modifies the autorun.inf file in the root drive of your flash drive so that it can execute commands that are mentioned in that file, most probably , it will execute a .exe file which is hidden in your pen drive by the virus so that your flash drive malfunctions and takes up much of your memory , i.e. physical memory used to run programs faster to which we call RAM.
I would recommend you the following steps to make sure that your drive is functioning properly.
Do a through scan of your flash drive and make sure that it's virus free , by a reliable antivirus software , there are some good ones available for free, I would recommend you download AVG free version if you don't have one , so that you can use it to scan your flashdrive. http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2011/3000-2239_4-10320142.html
After you scan your flash drive , and the anti virus heals the detected viruses or deletes them , you should not have this problem.
First thing is you can try to detect your pen drives with Linux.
(DSL Linux is just about 50 MB download. You'll need to burn it on to a CD as an IMAGE and not copy on the CD directly, then boot with the CD.It will automatically mount your USB drive and you can cpy the data to your hard disk and later format the USB drive.)

If that too fails, then you can try recovering using a data recovery software. Or contact me and I can personally help but a live chat session would be better since posting here will take and waste time. You could contact me on
and then we can proceed to chat and solve this issue. I won't take any charge. I'll be happy helping getting the data since I know how it feels to lose precious data.
