I currently have a flash drive that suddenly stopped working and stopped showing in My computer, but i noticed when its plugged the plug and unplug sounds just keep going on and off without stopping as if its stuck, i really wanna fix the USB so i can format to windows 10, without it i wont be able to burn the ISO. so please any ways to fix the Flash drive?

EDIT: USB flash drive was working fine before this happened.

Thanks :)
 
Hey there, lenotre.

Try the flash drive with a different computer, or at least with different USB ports on yours, to see if the same thing happens. Also check if it's recognized in Disk Management. If it is, it might just need you to assign it a new drive letter in order to appear in Windows Explorer (My Computer). Here's how to do that: How to change the drive letter assignment in Windows

Hope that helps.

Since you said its showing up in the EDIT right click on it and choose troubleshoot
 
Try out @Cazauxx's suggestion. If that doesn't work you still have the option of trying it with a different computer. You could also try some of the formatting tools, which some of the manufacturer's offer for their memory cards and USB flash drive's, to see if it's detected and if you're able to reformat it and use it afterwards.
