Won't detect pen drive in any computer. Can't format as well

  1. I was using the pen drive (a monster 16GB one) in a Net Cafe when suddenly I got a message and it went bonk. I had 16 GB data in it.

    Now I brought it to office. Now.

    • It won't get detected.
    • Even disk mgt. does not recognize it.
    • This happens in every computer.
    • Can't format also. Says No drive.. insert a disk.

    It has to be a virus I think since our local Net Cafes are full of viruses. I tried various tools I downloaded but none of them even detect the disk. Other USB Pen drives work in my machine.

    It shows the PEN drive with a drive letter (I) in the Windows Explorer but when I double click it, it says Please insert a disk into drive I:.

    My OS Is XP Pro V 2002 SP 3.

    Is my USB drive kaput??
