My Sandisk usb flash drive is reporting no media in Disk Management under my computer Windows 10, is there anything I could do to make it work in my pc, the memory stick was not in use for a about 2 months ago and then suddenly it turned out no media in disk management.
32GB Kingston thumb drive said no media found in computer disk management after inserted it in a usb port and no files can be found since the whole flash drive is almost not accessible now. There must be something wrong with my thumb stick but the problem is I got no idea of fixing the damaged stick. Is it dying or could it still be repaired? What am I supposed to do with it? This troublesome stick stored some photos, I am wondering whether these images could still be retrieved from the usb stick no media found error.
