I can't open my flash drive. When I inserted it to my computer it would just appear a removable disk in "my computer" and then when I tried to open it tells that there is no disk on the dirve.

I tried to open it after changing the Drive letter by using disk management.

But it couldn't.

Can this be fixed? what should I do to open it so that I can Use it again.

Hope you can help me with this problem. thanks!

junjuramesh hi, try a diffrent port, then click on 'computer' if you see your removeable usb, r/click on it from the dropdown that appers rename the letter to say F or what you like , exit computer screen go to the disconect icon(remove safely) in the taskbar pop-up,... can you see it now! post back
ps, when you insert the 'usb'does it say .. installing driver,your device is ready to use, or your device did not install properly?

Hi marks100, Thanks for your quick responce.

I tried in all ports available in my computer. when I insert the usb, the tray icon for safe removal is not appearing. I tried what u told to rename the usb, after renaming the usb, I just clicked at eject in the menu for the right click on the usb drive. It is removing safely and I can able to see the Safe remove icon when removing it. And after I again inserted that, no safe remove icon....just a removable disk drive icon appearing in Mycomputer.

Here I am attaching the image of "my computer". Now u can get an idea...
