It doesn’t show up in linux or mac and in windows I get the error “The disk is drive F is not formatted. ” The first weird thing is that it’s shown as only 8MB. I have tried using Active Kill Disk to delete everything on the drive but that doesn’t seem to do anything. I can see the drive in Disk Management and also did change the drive letter but still not seen in My Computer.both my pendrives stopped working after i used them in one of my office pc. @deepu this is exactly what happened to my friend’s pen drive. a faulty port can apply over-voltage to the pen drive and the pen drive might have burned-out the internal circuit.My Computer does not show the removable disk drive ;therefore I cannot read my drive contents ; but my drive LED flashes .Also an icon appears on my system tray (this is the “Safely Remove hardware ” icon ). At my office where I work , my drive gets detected normally , and functions perfectly. I tried reinstalling Win XP SP2 and the motherboard drivers , but in vain .pls help how I can detect pen drive in my computer and get my data.

When I insert the pen drive again, “My Computer” detct the pen drive but the files which I had saved in pen drive are not shown.
