they can fail, try it in another computer and it might work, if that's the case the USB drivers might be corrupt on your PC, now that 's another question.

USB Mass Storage Device

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to usb mass storage not work ...

Is the device between the USB Port and the Memory on what you are plugging into it here.

I would double check this Thumb Drive in another computer but I would expect that it has failed and suffered some form of Physical Damage which has resulted in the Circuit Board no longer having the correct connections with the RAM inside the device.

The solution if that is the case is to replace it with a new one and do not stuff it into Humid areas like Pockets where it can get damaged.
