    scan for hardware changes.then it appears but not able to access any

    file.Then i restarted the system. The Chkdsk run's for the USB PenDrive

    After logging in checked it is working fine.

    it's not uncommon for a USB pendrive to be accidentally zapped by static electricity and destroyed. in fact, its quite common. try another pendrive, or try yours on another computer. if yours works on another machine, your computer is the problem. if it doesn't work on another computer either (one with win2k or XP) then you can reasonably conclude that said drive has indeed fallen victim to static discharge.

    A lot of people don't bother to put the little plastic caps on their pen/flash drives when sticking it in their shirt or pants pocket. Clothes are notorius for buiilding up static by rubbing around. One zap and you're through.

    You can try the flash drive recovery procedures in the FAQs to see if you can restore functionality. If not, it's toast.
