Hello,

Try this 1

Click on Start --> In search box, type control folders and press Enter.

[If you are using Windows XP then type control folders in Run and press Enter]

"Folder Options" will be opened. Click on the "View" tab.

Now select the option "Show hidden files, folders or drives" and uncheck the

check box "Hide protected operating system files" --> Click on "OK" button.

Now look for your files in your Pen drive.

Later undo the changes you have made by once again going to "Folder Options"

--> Click on "View" tab and click on "Restore Defaults" button --> Click on "OK".

Good Luck

These type of problems are being noticed in the fake pen drives. Is your pen drive genuine ?
You should have a serial number at the USB Tip as shown in the below image.
USB Pen drive
Transcend online recovery won't detect the fake pen drive.
Good Luck

Hello,

I'm referring to the serial number at the Tip. Not at the PCB. Let me know the color strip around the transcend pen drive. These fake pen drives even if does work for a while it will create the same problem again and again. You might result in data loss,
Good Luck

If serial number doesn't exist then its a Fake pen drive. Transcend 16GB pen drive will be having a pink strip along with the serial number at its tip. Such fake pen drive when used will result in data loss as it gets stop working at any given time.
