When I plug this device in it is recognized by Windows and the systray informs me that it has found new hardware and tells me it is ready for use, also, it is listed in Device Manager and claims to "working properly".

However, I can't find it.

It just isn't listed anywhere. I cannot navigate to it.

It doesn't require any drivers, I've tried all the ports on the computer, I've tried it on other computers and it acts the same everywhere, every time.

Could the drive just be dead?

I've used it plenty of times in the past. I'll try your suggestions but I believe it's a Windows file system on it, with just some backed up work.

How, exactly, would I open it via the command prompt?

do you have use DOS before???

There are two conventional ways to start a Command prompt.
1. Start, Programs, Accessories, Command prompt
2. Start, Run and type "cmd" (minus quotes) and press enter.

if the command prompt windows open...type e: (or drive letter of your flashdrive)..if show "The System cannot find the drive specified" that mean you input drive letter that not be use..
if it open e:\> (or drive letter that you use) type dir....see if it show up of something (usually a name of folder and file that you have stored in your flashdrive)

if not try open your flash drive in linux....

Yes, I've used DOS before and I know how to start it.

However, if the drive is not listed anywhere, or assigned a letter, I can't see it anywhere, it's not in Disk Management...how am I supposed to navigate to its drive letter?

Where is the drive letter listed? I can't find it in any of the usual places...you know like Windows Explorer, Disk Management etc.

And, again, it isn't a *NIX file system on the drive...it's a Windows file system.
