Repairing a Defective USB Thumb Drive?
Jan 2, 2013

How does a working USB thumb drive (32gb), that worked last summer, become defective while sitting in a drawer?

Can it somehow be restored to working order?

I put it in my desktop USB ports (tried several of them) and each time the PC asked that I insert a drive in the port where it was already present.  Same thing happened with my laptop as well.
