Hi Vishal,

I recommend you to open Device Manager and search for the device under USB devices. Uninstall it, restart the PC and plug the pen drive back in. Please confirm if the error appears when the device is connected to another PC. I strongly recommend you to update your anti virus and do a complete check. For more suggestions, please check the link below.

Uninstalling the drive from Device Manager does not affect the data stored on the drive. Those drivers should be automatically reinstalled when you restart the PC and plug the drive back in. The same process happens when you connect the drive to a PC for the first time. It may be worth it to try this method because sometimes solves similar issues.
Another thing to try is running the Command Prompt and typing the following command:
Chdkdsk L: /r

Replace the L with the drive’s letter.
