Hi Gosh

What is the make and model of your pen drive?

Will it open on another computer ?

Does it show in your device manager?
Sony 8GB. Class 6. it is not opened in other computer also. It shows the space occupied and free space when I check with properties. during opening it shows - ' This folder is empty'.
It shows in device manager.

Hi

I suggest you try this:

If you still can't open your drive after the exterminator, I believe your drive is damaged.

Good luck

If it is showing in device manager then do a right click on the drive and click on "update driver". After updating the driver software check whether you are able to open the drive or not.
