ok..long story why, but I followed some tutorial for altering the driver to change my 32 gb flash drive to be recognized as a local drive....but now, whenever I plug it in, or even plug it in, then boot up, it doesn't show the drive, and anything that has to do anything with the drive such as my computer, disk management, or driver uninstalling or altering locks up....but when I pull the drive out, it acts immediatly saying that the driver was uninstalled successfully even though it wasnt...all I want to do is restore it back to a flash drive....but it doesn't show up on any other computers either...and when i try to roll back the driver in safe mode, it freezes up and says that there are no drivers backed up...

You cannot reverse the steps you originally took...following said tutorial?
