More likely, one of the contacts inside that is broken. Test it on a different computer, if it does the same the memory is faulty ( probably a broken contact inside). If it does work on a different computer do the following:

Disconnect from usb and remove power cord (and battery if it is a laptop) from computer, to fix electrostatic charge problems on usb.
If the memory is one with the removable card inside, also push the card back in place.
If it still does not work, then it is probably a problem with Windows root hub, in this case easiest way to fix it is reinstalling Windows.

My san disk 2gb pen is canot open but light is blinking &showing remuvabal disk on my computer

USB Pen or stick drives usually use the letters "F" or "G" drives on your computer. If these drive letters are being used, the USB drive will not be available. Also, if this is the first time you are using the USB drive, it is possible the drive is not formatted. Although this is unlikely.

I will outline instructions below to use the Disk Management tool in windows to see if the drive shows all the drives connected to your computer. If your computer is recognizing the drive as you describe. I am confident USB Pen drive will show up in disk management. You may be able to assign a drive letter and make the drive visible in you my computer window.

The directions for using disk management are listed below. A note of caution, do not make any changes on you Disk 0. or "C" drive, as this is you main hard drive that starts your computer.

Right click on you “My Computer” Icon
A menu will open
Chose “Manage”
The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections. The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu. The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have no disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower shows each drive, their drive letter and status. The left section will have small boxes showing drive numbers. Drive 0 is usually your main hard drive. To the right of the smaller section is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show “healthy”) This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to: open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition.

In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows. A drive this is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted. This can be done from this window as described above.

Please follow these directions and see if you can make your drive visible. If you have any questions about the instructions or need further assistance, feel free to reply to this message and I will assist you further.

My 2gb pendrive not working it is not detected

You may have faced a problem when you insert your pen drive and it gets detected very easily but it doesn’t show up as a drive icon in My Computer. The Computer detects the pen drive but data on pen drive is not visible as the pen drive is not visible in My Computer (Explorer).
This problem occurs mainly when windows XP fails to allocate a drive letter to your portable drive(pen drive). It occurs mostly with new pen drives connected to your computer for the first time. If you face such problem then it may not be the pen drive’s fault, rather it may be windows trouble.

If Problem Fix:
You can fix this issue by following some simple steps given below.
1. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
2. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window will appear.
3. On this disk management window, you can see some drives including the portable drive. Right click on your portable drive and click change drive letter and paths.
4. Now a assign a new drive letter which is not being used by any of your drives in My Computer.
5. After assigning the new drive letter your portable drive will show up in my computer with other drives

When connected by USB cable removable hard disk does not appear in Windos Explorer. However, on other peoples PCs, the disk is visible.

your computer is probably naming it F: or something, but your PC already has a device issued to that letter.

Right-click on 'My Computer', it will open a 'Computer Management' window. On the left side, under 'Storage'.. click on 'Disk Management'. It will show some devices like your c: drive and d: drive.. does it recognize your removable hard drive?... if it does then right-click on it and choose 'Change Drive Letter'. CLick on the 'Change' button and change the drive letter to Q or X or something ...then apply it close the windows... then open Windows Explorer and see if you see your removable hard drive now.

good luck.

Select the external drive. Right click, and select "Change drive letters and paths"-->Highlight the driveletter to change-->Click the "Change" button-->From the drop-down list choose an unused drive letter, and hit Ok. 

The pen drive should be recognized and accessible at this point. Let me know if you have any other questions.
