OK, Disk 1 is your pen drive. It is only showing as Unknown and not initialised with no capacity indication. It no longer shows as RAW. So recovery with Partition Recovery Wizard does not apply.
Do you still have Partition Wizard Server Edition on your PC? If so, plug in the pen drive, Run Partition Wizard and post a screenshot. Let us see how your pen-drive looks in it compared to the first PW screenshot in your post #1( the fifth Screenshot in that series). I am only hoping that it does not show as a BAD Disk.
( If you have already uninstalled the server edition, install PW Home Edition and do it.)
We shall decide on further course of action after that examination.
Note: I sit before my desktop only when my crippled back permits. So there may be many hours of absence in-between. Wait and don't panic. Heaven's will not crash in this case. )

I am afraid Avinash, that the worst has happened to your flash drive. It is perhaps beyond redemption. When it turned RAW, it was perhaps the beginning of the end.
Anyway as a last ditch attempt, you can run PhotoRec and check whether it is successful in identifying the pen drive, and if it identifies, shows the files. Sometimes miracles do happen.
Don't worry about using PhotoRec. Whatever you do with it, it cannot kill even a perfectly working drive.
As a matter of fact, you can familiarise using it on a working pen drive. Make sure that you do not run TesDisk on a working drive.
Download TestDisk 6.14 Windows version from TestDisk Download - CGSecurity.
Extract the contents of the zip file into a directory. ( You have already done that)
Follow the procedure under the topic Recovery in Guide to using PhotoRec recovery software.
1.Right click on photorec_win.exe and Run as Administrator.
2. First Window:
....................and so on
NOTE: You should always pull out the pen drive (safely remove if available) and plug it in before running Partition Wizard or PhotoRec.
If you plug it in after starting PW or PhotoRec, it will not be identified.
Please check on this before you run PW or PhotoRec.
