Windows 7: Kingston flash drive not detected (probably hardware)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Kingston flash drive not detected (probably hardware)

I have a Kingston flash drive 8gb usb 2.0 just like this one:

but for some reason it's not working on my pc/laptop/ps3 and any other computer I tried it on.

when I plug in the flash drive I don't get any detected sound on my windows and it's not there on my computer either, just like as if it wasn't plugged in at all, I tried using different usb ports and it's the same, I'm guessing it's a hardware problem with the flash drive itself not software at all.

I don't care about the flash itself but the files inside the flash are really important to me I just need to copy them on my PC and that's it.

I'd really appreciate your help guys.
