Try going to Acer's site and double checking for the latest drivers for your model lappy.

Go into Disk Management and see if it's there and then format the drive hope that helps.

Oh well I guess the good news is thumb drives are cheap. Not sure just what you deleted off the drive so as to make it invisible? Can you rename the drive or write a file to it?

You could try:
(1) Go into Device Manager. Under portable devices see if the flash drive is listed. If so try "update driver software". You can also give the "Uninstall driver" option a go and see if a driver is automatically installed the next time you plug in the flash drive.
(2) Try the flash drive on another PC. If it doesn't work then you probably have a dud.

Not to give up so easily

Insert the pen drive.

Run chkdsk G: /f /r ..........from CMD (replace G by the actual drive letter of the pendrive).

See what results.
