  1. Hello,

    When I plugged my usB stick into the pc, it showed that it was recognized and the driver is installed properly,although i found the drive in my computer panel, i opened it but no objects were found, i tried the usb on another pc it still dint work, i right clicked on my computer,clicked manage and selected disk management, i right clicked on my drive and selected change drive letter and path, but when i clicked change and selected a new drive letter, i got a warning notifying me that changing it might cause the program to no longer run so i backed out.should i ignore the warning? please how can i solve this problem?,


    Thanks for reading.

    When was the last time you used your USB stick? Do you remember saving files to it and if so, how many?

    Sounds like your flash drive is defective. The only thing you can try is to reformat it and see if that makes it work again. Of course, you will lose any data that might still be stored on it.
