I have a small USB thumbdrive I've used for years. I can put it in a USB port & my Win10 -Asus -ROG laptop makes the sound that a new device was plugged in, I have " This PC" opened. I can see the icon for the device pop up "USB Drive (E:)". If I double click on it a window pops up saying " please insert a disk into USB Drive (E:)". I can right click on it & see all the options. I figured maybe it needs to be formatted again. I select to format the device & I get a popup window saying "There is no disk in E. Insert a disk & try again". So why can I see the drive show up as available in "This PC" but I can't do anything with it? It appear as the E drive but then the system acts like its not even there.
How can I fix this?
