I have a 64GB memory stick that has decided not to work as you can understand I do not want to just chuck it and get another one as it was expensive. If I put the stick into a PC it shows up once ( works fine). If I then remove it ( correctly ) and put it in again it just comes up as a flash drive and I am unable to view any of my files. Has anyone any idea on how to fix, at first I thought it was because the drive letter was already taken on the PC and so I change the drive letter of the USB and that still did nothing.
Right mouse click on "my computer" , and choose "manage" , the click on "disk management" , then look for your pen drive in the bottom grey panel, right mouse click on it and choose "change drive letters and paths" , change its drive letter to "H" for example, wait a few seconds then try to use it, see if your fines are there, if not, then format it and see what happens.
I thought we nearly had it then, the property options are available and I tried everything from PP321 suggested. waited a few secs and tried to open or explore and it just says insert disk into drive U. when I look at the drive in manage drives it just comes up as no media.
