    Well, for starters, what is your Operating System (OS) ? Have you checked in your Device manager? Have you tried rebooting your machine & putting it back in? Have you tried it on another machine? Answer those & other questions others may have & you may solve the problem. :)

    Try it in another port and in another computer. If it's still not recognised the good news is that these devices are now very cheap to replace. If it's dead it's not likely you can recover data from it.
