Hey,

I have a problem with Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 -- DT101G2, it worked fine the first time, then after formatting it, it is no longer showing up in "My computer", Disk management, CMD disklist, nor "USB mass storage" appears in Driver list.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

After plugging in the device, go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again

I have already tried that. Nothing.
When i said: "nor "USB mass storage" appears in Driver list.", i meant what you were suggesting.

Obviously the drive has been damaged.

Sorry
