Well, your usb flash drive may come to its end of life.. well, if theres a chance that you can access your files, better make a copy out of it, for your back up. and if you could make a back up copy of your usb flash drive, try to format your flash drive and observe if the same problem will come out, if so, well your usb flash drive may be already damage.

    well in your case, you should go to a computer repair shop, because it is a usb flash drive, its considered as a computer accessory. well digital camera shops only repairs camera and other media cards which cameras used.

Instead of trying to access them when they do come up, try shifting them or making a backup.

Try formatting the flash drive using this method.

Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

I inserted my Apcer USB 1gb flash drive, it was recognized but when i open it, it says ''Please insert a disk into drive X:''


Is there anything on the disk it self? If there is/was a virus on the disk, it could have left a 'autorun.inf' file on it ... So try Right-click and select explore. Or try to access it via the Total Commander
If that doesn't work, try formatting the disk.
This is an often problem with most low-end flash disks.
Did you receive some software with that disk?
