USB pen drive not visible in windows explorer (unusable)

September 12, 2020 at 04:30:02
Specs: Windows 10
Suddenly my 16 GB pen drive stopped showing on Windows explorer. It’s still visible in Device Manager as "SMI USM MEMORY BAR USB Device” and in “Devices and Printers” as “SM3259AA MEMORY BAR” which is showing 0 bytes.

As it is not visible from explorer and disk management, the system can’t read and format it too.

Is there any way around to repair it.

I’ve already tried repairing with:

Malvastyle usb repair tool,

HP USB disk Storage format tool,

USB write Protect,

And some other windows applications.

Disk management can't detect it.
Tried to format using command prompt, but it says "There is no media in the device"

Thanks !

Might simply have given up the ghost/ided...?

A very long shot... have you tried it in more than one usb port; and even another coputer... AS I say "very" long shot(s)...
