usb drive showing 0 bytes

"Whenever I'm plugging my 8 GB USB drive and then I try to open it. But it shows a pop up window which is saying to format. When I click on format it says 'WINDOWS WAS UNABLE TO COMPLETE FORMAT' and it is also showing 0 bytes. Need to recover my files desperately. Please give me any solution."


Insert your USB drive into your PC and click on it but get the following error message "Please insert a disk into drive X"; worse still, the drive properties show 0 bytes used 0 bytes? The easiest way to fix USB flash drive shows 0 bytes issue is to format it. However, attempting to format the drive returns the warning: "there is no disk in drive X.
