Hi everyone

I have a 8gb Phillips thumb/pen drive. It worked with no problems for six months but now its not working anymore.

When I plug it in Windows finds it and shows it as E in My Computer

When I click on it it says "insert a disc into drive E"

I have accessed Disk Managment to change the letter but it doesnt show in the top section , only the bottom and when I changed the letter it made no difference. On this lower section of DM it shows me what the brand is and space etc.

I tried to reformat but it but again says "insert a disc into drive E"

Any ideas ??

Thanks in advance
