Hello Vish,

Have you tried accessing the USB drive through the Command prompt_ If not, please, check on these steps:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X:/*.* / s / d
3. Then hit "Enter" and wait about for some seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC /that you can see it in My Computer/
4. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the recycle folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Let me know if that helped you. Cheers.
