    Try doing a hard reset, press the Power button until the computer shuts off then restart it and see if it works, if it doesn't I will help you find another solution.
  2. Try to test it with diagnostic software:

    Or run your anti-virus tool to see whether is attacked by some virus.

    i had this problem a month ago , and still it can't be recognized
    of course i shut my PC many times since then , but that didn't solve the problem

    but i think if it's attacked by a virus , at least it will show up in desk management , anyway i used your software , but it can't recognize it either

    whenever i open my PC with my USB flash drive plugged in , a message pop up saying
    " the last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows doesn't recognize it "
    when i go to device manager , i see unknown device under other devices
    i tried to reinstall it , but still the same problem exists

    i use windows 8 64 bit

    any ideas ?

    I have exactly the same problem, my computer makes the sound but doesn't show the USB-stick. A common answer is that you need to check your storage under management, but it doesn't show up there either... Did you already find a solution?
