After plugging in the device. Go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again, i think this should solve the problem.

Hello Sheetu,

Since you pen is not recognized by another computer, I am awfully sorry but your pendrive is damaged beyond repair.

This type of damage occurs when the pendrive is removed from the usb before the drive is completely closed or removing the pen quicky in a angle move.

@Paul

The pen can't be read so the data can't be recovered. Sorry.

Hello Sheetu,

There is no other solution. You pendrive has been damaged, perhaps through removing it from the USB improperly.

Sorry
