... have you tried rebooting/restarting the pc with the usb device attached?

... windows may see it again or look in device manager

... click "start" run (type) devmgmt.msc [press enter] anything you see with a yellow marker right click (option) uninstall then

... click the "Action" (tab) and "scan for hardware changes"

... or you could try this to format the usb device!

You probably need to plug the pen drive into a different USB port,
or -
If you have not dropped the drive or otherwise damaged it, your problem was probably caused by you NOT clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon in your Taskbar and STOPping accessing the drive BEFORE you unplugged the drive while Windows was running.
There are several programs that you could try that will probably fix your problem.

If you have a desktop computer, Note that I answered a Topic on this site where a guy had an external drive, which does require the full 500ma, connected to a port on the back of a desktop case - it would not work properly when a webcam was in the port next to it, but it worked fine when the webcam was unplugged. Ports on the back of a desktop case often have two ports connected to the same USB controller module that are ports one above the other - you could try connecting the pen drive to one of those and leaving the other un-used.
