Hello,

Try this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* --> Press Enter

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Good Luck!

Okay, here is a solution you can try. In order to use your pen drive, you need to format it.
Here is a procedure:XP
Right click on my computer
select manage
Double click on Disk management
Now you will be able to see your pen drive drive
Right click on the drive where your pen drive is mounted
Select format
Bingo!!
Hope it works. If you are using any other operation system then let me know.
