Win 8, new flash drive (64GB), shows up as drive E: in device manager, but nothing in file mgmt. My own fault, I interrupted a format as I wanted it as NTFS. But now I can't format because file management doesn't see it. But anti-virus sees it when I insert the flash drive, port is OK.

Diskmgmt.msc says "no media" for drive E: giving me no option to format nor do much of anything else. But it does realize that there's a USB drive there.
