Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you referring to a USB thumb drive or another type of device?

You can try another port on the same computer as well to see if it works. if it fails on all ports it could be the drive or you system, you don’t know. You can always try it in another computer to see it it is the device or not. It it works there, then your USB ports may be damaged or disabled..If the drive fails on the other computer, it’s most likely the drive itself.  Check out this site for some recovery and repair instructions.

    Suspecting virus activity might be a cause. It is better to run a virus scan for this flash drive and check if that helpful. For disappearing, you can restart your system in Safe mode and see if that flash drive stays for a while. For virus scan you can download/ install MWAV and scan/ clean the flash drive.
