Hello,



I am a Windows 10 user. I have a Transcend 4 GB USB pen drive which is not showing in my computer and even plugged in asks for the disk to be inserted, in properties it shows 0B, no capacity and i cannot access the drive. I have tried several ways using command prompts (admin) and disk managements but nothing seemed to have worked. All the times i searched on internet looking to fix the problem have gone to wasted since nothing could find me a resolve to my problem, if anybody anyhow can help me on this, i will be really grateful. Thank you

After plugging in the device, go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again

Bad news! I am afraid that your pen drive is damaged, unfortunately pen drives cannot be repaired.

Sorry

The led light in my pen drive is still blinking and computer makes the sound when it is connected, i can open it as a portable device but cannot copy anything on it, the drive is empty. There must be some way i can fix it, isn't it so? Like Transcend pen drives mostly serve a lifetime unless damaged dont they?
