i think my flash drive died, don't know where to get help, i just tried here.
is there any chance i can restore it? the shop where i bought it don't seem to have or provide a good software for their products so i will need to make my own ways to make this flashdrive work again.

i hope i can get a help.

Hi there
If your flash drive is still being detected when plug in usb socket.........right click on my comuter....then manage....then disk management.........refresh drives......if it picks up flash drive just reformat it .........hopefully you get a working drive.
