I have Sony Vaio USB FLash drive . Whenever I insert the flash drive into the computer, it detects the flash drive and I can see the flash drive icon in the system tray as well as the drive is visible in the windows explorer.However, when I try to open that drive, it gives me the message "Please insert removable disk in to the drive" ,but, the drive is already inserted.

No doubt that it has been physically damaged and pen drives cannot be repaired.

Hey that's not true, I have the same problem, it's a brand new pen drive, shows in some computers but not mine, "please insert disk into removable disk" is what it says. I've changed and assigned new letters to it but didn't work for me, maybe it might work for you though so follow these steps

1)Go to "run"
2) Type "compmgmt.msc"
3)Click on "Disk Management"
4) Find your drive there and "Right Click" and "Change drive letter and Paths"
5) Click on "Change" and assign it a new letter like Z and click on ok for the pop up
6)It might show on My Computer now or you may have to restart your computer
Changing name really worked..
Did all the steps then realised all storege is un allocated :) My bad
great buddy it worked
