Try updating the drivers?

Davan - is the your pendrive recognised on other computers?

If so, are you able to write and read back from it?

Does the usb port (on your computer) that is failing to recognise the pendrive, work with other devices?

Shelby - I do not think drivers are involved for a pendrive.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

I had same kind of issue. When I plugged mine in all I got was an icon on the task bar that when I hovered over popup would say "unknown device" I right clicked and clicked update driver and badda boom badda bing. Maybe it was more to do with the usb port but it worked for me.

You may have to enable "mount" so the OS will mount the USB drive.

Open a command prompt window and type


then hit Enter
