Hi Ricky,

Please test the flash drive on another PC. Does the issue appear there too? If so, open device Manager and check if the drive is listed there, under USB devices. Uninstall the drive, restart the PC and plug the flash drive back in. Can you see some automatic installation process? Go back to Disk Management and check if the drive has appeared. If it is still missing, run the Command Prompt as an Administrator and type the following commands:

Diskpart
List disk

Check if the drive is listed there.


Hope this helps
