Hello, guys!

I'm in big trouble. It's a "hama USB 3.0 64 GB" I'm talking about here. I have tried to transfer some important files on it and accidentally took it out of the USB Port without ejecting it. Please tell me there is a way to fix it. I searched the web, didn't get the solution. Everything else is about "Device Description Request Failed" or something like that.

Here's a link of screens showing my specs and the issue itself. I have put this USB device in another PC, tried different kinds of tricks and ,at least , it is now readable as a detachable USB device and it has a specific error. It's still not showing up on "This PC" .

Please list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS: including the version for your OS

Since you're working with a laptop, include the make and model of your laptop and the SKU to said laptop. Have you manually installed all drivers meant for your platform after sourcing them from the laptop manufacturer's site?

On a donor system, does the USB device show up without errors?

No, I haven't manually installed the drivers. I didn't even source them from the manufacturer's site, they were automatically installed and updated.

Would you kindly explain to me what is a donor system?

try deleting the Unknown USB device in Device manager and Allow it to Remove the associated Drivers/software in the next window. Unplug the USB flash and wait a minute before plugging it back in again.
See if that works.

I had to do that several times for a 32Gb card years ago before it finally worked and would format, but then I realized that i didn't trust it anymore anyways and threw it out.
