Hi Rishabh,

The most important question is if the data on the pendrive is important. If it is not, format the pendrive, update your anti virus software and do a complete PC scan.
If the data is important, confirm that there are no hidden files or folders. Use the attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* command from the Command Prompt replacing g with your pendrive’s drive letter. Try the device on another PC. Have a look at this article, because it contains some good suggestions:

Hope this helps
