Hello,
Kingston Datatraveler 100 series could not be open because it is not detected in PC. I checked in other PCs also but the result is same. when I connect the Flash Drive it blink once and after 5 second blink once and after 5 second again blink and continues but couldn't detect it in the PC. I checked in the Disk Management also but still not detected. How can I detect the Flash Drive and recover the data on it.

If you can't get any system to recognize the USB drive, you really only have one option. You would need to contact a data recovery service (if you are willing to pay) to see if they can retrieve the data for you.

There really aren't any feasible end-user options to take the drive apart and try to recover the data.

It seems that your Kingston Datatraveler 100 series is either virus infected or corrupted. The formatting of it may remove the error. But keep in mind, it will erase all the information from the memory card, so be cautious before formatting it.

If you have updated back-up then format it and restore the clean back-up. On the other hand, you can use a Photo Recovery Software in absense of updated back-up. Because a Photo Recovery software is efficient enough to recover photos, audios and videos from any corrupted or formatted media.

To do this means the drive must physically be recognized by the computer first. Once that is possible, you may be able to do as ronald30 suggests. From the OP, I don't think this is the case.

COLGeek is right if the device won't get recognized then it's bad. But you may try cagesafe2 suggestion plug it on another computer (may I suggest slowly this time - I have observed people treat USB slots like a metal key to a door, they're different) If it got detected then copy all files to that unit fast. If the copying stops you may consider using a recovery software for that. Try this>
