flash drive

My flash drive, Samsung 128 MB, was working fine and had some photos untill I asked a friend to load about 20 more from their computer. now it wont open. Properties show Used space 0 bytes, Free space 0 bytes, Capacity 0 bytes
Any clues ?

I hope you had everything on it backed up!

Easiest option is to reformat and start from scratch.

File system will be probably corrupt caused by being unplugged while writing to the drive
