USB flash stick isnt recognised...

ive got a USB stick flash drive 16gb, it isn't showing up on pc or laptop

ive got other USB sticks and they are working fine on pc and laptop

any ideas what I can do with this other than bin it?

obviously looks like the usb stick and not the pc or laptop

its not showing on the pc or laptop so I cant see it in disk management...

its a cheapoo 7 day, time for the bin?

Try leaving the flash drive connected to the usb port then shut down the PC. Wait a few seconds then reboot. Windows might get to see it then.

It might be showing as a mass storage device in device manager.

no, none of the previous 2 things worked...

Seems that the internal connections have broken so I would bin it and not buy a cheapo again.
