Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.
You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.
Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.
Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.
You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.
Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.
To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.
Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.
Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.
Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.
Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

It may be possible that your PC is not reading the pen drive. use it on a computer/laptop that reads it and backup the data there. Then format it and insert it in your computer. If need be then format it in your computer. If it does not work anywhere then, obviously, the pen drive is bad.
your pen drive is not recognize by the usb port onyour computer, remove the pen drive from the port and insert it to another usb port on your computer, if you still having problems, restart the computer and try again on a different port.
Test to make sure the USB functions on PC ( plug a camrea or something else into it ) If the camera doesn't work either , then you need to get a PCI USB card . If the Pen drive shuts down on another computer then you need to dispose of the pen drive ( more than likely the pen drive is not working )
