While loading a Sony 32 GB USB key, my laptop started lagging. I got impatient and unplugged the key. The laptop restored but my USB doesn't work anymore.
I tried it in the laptop and another computer, but it's not responding. Its lights flash a bit, but further nothing. There is no auto-run, and it does not appear in My Computer nor in Disk Management. A program called "USB Deview" marked it as inactive.
It's probably a software problem in the USB, but how can I fix it if it cannot be accessed?
Can it still be repaired? I have a backup of the files, but I would love to still be able to use my USB key.
