It might be worth trying you pen drive in another computer. That way you'd know whether or not it's the pen drive at fault.

Have you tried switching pc off, and off switch at back of tower, and pulling mains plug out and then hold in the power switch on the tower for at least 30 seconds.
To discharge build up of static.

Read this on another thread on here and the usb's were fixed and Ext drives, printer etc were recognised when pc was switched back on.
