I have a Blackweb 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive. Up until yesterday, it was working fine, until, when I unplugged it, stopped working (Yes, I did "safely remove" it).
The following day, I tried to view the contents of the flash drive, but nothing was showing up on Windows Explorer. Thinking that the port was dead or didn't have enough power, I switched it to another one. That didn't work too. Over the course of the day, I tried plugging it into a Chromebook and Windows 7/10 computers at my school. None of them could see it, except in "Devices and Printers".
When I got home and inserted it, my Windows 7 PC "successfully installed driver software" for "Innostor NAND USB Flash Drive", although I've used it on that computer for a few months now. I've tried to access it in Disk Management ("No media"), diskpart ("No media"), and Devices and Printers (IS917). No problems can be detected by Windows, and it seems to recognise that it is a USB Mass Storage Device.
Is the flash drive gone for good? I've backed up all of the data on it, but any help is appreciated. I don't want to get a new one.
