I have a thumb drive that worked yesterday. I plugged it into my laptop this morning as I do nearly every morning. It isn't even registering on my laptop as a removable device or anything. I have plugged it into every USB connection & still nothing. I need the information of it. Is there any way to transfer it?

Carefully open the flash drive and inspect the USB pins for cracked solder joints.

Alternatively, scan both sides of the circuit board and let us have a look at it.
