    How old is it?  Does it work on another computer?

      Do you mean you haven't tried it on another computer or it doesn't work on the other computer?

          Hi

          Perhaps your friend's computer wrote something onto your pendrive.

          Perhaps a user error, like removing it without going through the "Safely Remove ..." procedure.

          Perhaps your friend has a virus, and after you eventually succeed in reading from the pen-drive you will need to visit the malware removal forum.
          Sorry, DOOM and GLOOM are my specialist subjects !!!

          Regards
          Alan

            I don't think malware is the problem here.

            anandkpvs, have you been using the Safely Remove Hardware feature?

            Also, EXACTLY what happens when you plug it in?

            Look for a small micro-switch on the drive somewhere...they are there for security reasons...

            It may also turn out that the drive has "died."  It does happen.  I had a Lexar quit after the two year mark.  The subject doesn't come up often, but I caution people that if a USB drive is their only backup, they should have a second USB as redundant backup, too.
