    Does it appear in File Explorer? That is, when you open Computer from your desktop, do you see it there?

    Hmm, not sure why this is happening, or rather not happening. Did it used to work properly?

    When you look at the properties of this device, what is the folder optimized for? I think it should be "General items".

    Then that could suggest many things - including a faulty pendrive. You need to try it another computer. It could also be the USB port. So you could try a different port (on a different pair of ports) or another device in that port.

    Re: Send to option

    If you have to assign a drive letter each time you insert this drive into a different computer, you may have to do the following steps to fix it.

    Press start, search for Command Prompt, and Run as Admin.

    Type "Diskpart" and press enter.
    Type "List Volume" and press enter. Note the # of the volume of your drive.
    Type "Select Volume #" and press enter. Replace "#" with the number in the previous step.
    Type "Attributes Volume Clear NoDefaultDriveLetter" and press enter. You should see a success message.
    Type "exit" and press enter. Do this twice.
