There is a tool that "usually" fixes the issue. But you will lose any data on the drive.


Download USB Flash Driver Format Tool Ufix- III from PNY.

USB Flash Driver Format Tool (Ufix III) - for USB 2.0 & 3.0 flash driver

Extract the zip file.
NOTE: You might need 7-Zip installed to extract the file. It is a free download.

Extract "RecoverTool_Q1107V2.exe" from the downloaded file and run it.
