Why does my USB pen drive appear to be bricked?

When I plug my Transcend -JFV30/2GB pen drive in Windows shows me a notification that the device is not recognized. It is receiving power but that’s it.

    Could be a corrupt driver. Plug the device in. Open Device Manager and locate the device. Right-click the entry and select Uninstall to remove the driver. Reboot the computer and allow the system to reinstall the drivers.

    Plug your pen drive on another computer.
