SOURCE: Hitachi 80 GB. USB HDD problam.
If you plug it in and it does not appear, it may be choosing the wrong drive letter.
If that drive letter is already in use it will not appear.
Open the start menu, right click on my computer, then choose manage.
Select (on the left) Disk Management.
If it appears in there.
Find the thumbdrive in the list and right-click and choose 'Assign a new drive letter' . Make it like M or somthing far down in the alphabet.
If that does not appear under the disk management then the disk might be physically damaged.
An urban myth (which does sometimes work) includes putting the drive in the freezer for a day or so.
Also remember it might be somthing as simple as a bad cable or port on the computer. Try to access it with a new cable from a diffrent computer.

Some advice: You will not get much of a response from Hitachi; they are currently involved in several class action lawsuits over a newer model and deny they even knew it had any problems which is a joke as parts were being rushed on hundreds of sets with same problems.
In your case I would ask a few questions: Same shop doing the repair every time?
Did they change BOTH convergence chips each time?
I have seen some shops where they only replace one and within a year or so the other goes out and also I have seen from a Major company where a tech replaced the chips (only one) and did not apply heat sink grease to it.......lasted about ten months.
If a shop repairs your set you (law here in California) are entitled to the old parts being returned to you.
The only other possible reason for this is one of the convergence yokes is pulling too much current; they are located on each of the three picture tubes and I have seen only four sets where this caused repeated failure of the chips.
Check your old repair invoices/receipts: were you charged for two of the chips (Usually STK-392-110 OR STK-392-150.)
Either the repair was not done correctly or there is another problem; current can be tested on the yokes to see if one or more are pulling too much current.
Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.
