Just on the laptop or on all computers?

If you can afford to lose the information on the thumb drive you may be able to format it and make it functional again.

1. Go in Start > write “cmd” > right-click the Windows Command Prompt and choose to run it as an Administrator.
2. At the prompt, enter “DISKPART” to launch Microsoft’s disk management utility. It will take a second until it loads and when ready it will read “DISKPART>”.
3. Type in “list disk” to show a list of all disk drives. If your USB key is plugged into your PC, it should be listed here, along with other drives. Note the USB key’s disk number – you can pick it out by looking at the disk capacity.
4. Type “select disk n" (whatever is your USB disk number in place of "n").
5. Type “clean” for the utility to clean the disk, which DiskPart will confirm.
6. Create a new partition by entering “create partition primary”.
7. Choose this partition with “select partition 1", and then mark it as active by typing “active”.
8. Format the key by inputting “format fs=fat32". This should take a few minutes, and DiskPart will display a progress percentage.
9. Lastly, type “assign” to give this USB key a drive letter and “exit” to exit DiskPart.

Is this the same computer that created the data?

The hard drive with the information has crashed we were able to save most of the information on a USB. We put the USB in another computer and that computer will not read the USB, we have tried other computers and they will not read it either

In disc management again, if the drive/usb stick shows up, right click on the bar that represents the usb drive and select properties, then from that window select tools, then error correction and see if that helps. Be sure to safely dismount/remove the drive/stick before you remove it from a pc. You will find that option on your task bar under 'safely remove hardware', or in my computer right click on the drive and then select 'eject'.
