Does it light up, or anything? What if you put it into another USB port? Can you open it up on a friends computer?

Hi spsinghjoon,

Open Disk Management and check if the drive is visible there with a correct drive letter and a file format. If the drive has a drive letter, open the Command Prompt and type the following command:
Chkdsk D: /r

Replace D with the USB drive’s drive letter. Wait for the process to finish and try to access the drive again. If it is still not working or the drive is not visible in Disk Management, there may be a serious problem with the drive. Do you have important data stored in it?

Hope this helps
