Try plugging it into a different USB port, if you have one, and then into a different computer. If still no joy then I'm afraid it has failed. I use flash drives on a daily basis, as part of my job, and one fails at least every 6 months - they are not the best way of keeping backups.

If you need the data from it then data recovery companies can do the job, but expect to pay a fair bit for them to do it.

Flash drives are the least reliable of modern storage media. They should be used as a transport media, not as primary storage for important files. You should always have a another copy stored on different media.
