Do the following steps:
1. Open a new text document in the flash drive
2. Enter the following code in the text document:

@echo off
attrib -s -h -r /s /d

3. Click File - Save as
4. Save it as "unhide.bat"
5. Close and delete the new text document
6. Double click on the "unhide" batch file
7. A black command screen will pop up and close

Now You would be able to see your files .....To make them clearly visible..Press Ctrl+A in your flash drive and then uncheak Hidden from the properties...ANd press Apply then Ok.

If inspite all the above solutions you are not able to see them.....JUST Install an Antivirus on your PC(if possible)
