Hello Welcome to JustAnswer

Try to use it on some other usb port and on other computer as well

If that did not work,then it is faulty,you should get it replaced from the vendor.Because there will not be a software issue with pen drives,it will always be hardware issue

Ok, but how about will I be able to retrieve the files I have on it?
