Hey blankdo. I'd suggest that you try the USB flash drive with another USB port or even better - another computer. If the same thing occurs, I think that unfortunately it has probably failed.

However there's still something you could try, take a look at this thread here: https://ccm.net/faq/26915-usb-key-unable-to-access-device-i-o-device-error

Hope that helps.
