If the flash drive is plugged into a USB port it actually works with,
and if shows up as a USB mass storage device in Device Manager, then your problem is probably that the data on the drive that shows where files are on the drive is damaged. In that case if you use one of the programs mentioned to repair the data damage of the data that shows where files are on the drive , whatever personal data that was on the drive should then show up fine and the flash drive will be recognized normally.
