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.

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?
clean your usb port if it does not work open my comp then watch in that window and keep inserting and uninserting until u see my comp reconize it if you have to do the ladder it is time for a new flash drive they do not last forever
