Pen drive shows in my computer but not in disk management

I have a problem with my pen drive. It is an 8 GB Sandisk Cruser Edge flash drive. When I plug it in, kaspersky runs a virus scan on all the files in the drive, it appears in my computer list of drives. But when I try to open it, no files appear. It shows 0 bytes in properties. It does not appear in disk management. I am not able to format it normally and even in command mode.

Please let me know on what is to be done to use that drive again.

Thanks in advance.

It's a faulty pen drive. Replacement is the best option since they do not cost very much these days. There is no point in using a pen drive which has started to give you problems, and no point trying to fix it.
