USB no longer showing up

Hello, recently i have been wondering why in the world my usb device is no longer showing up under the "computer" section anymore, this all just happened these past couple days and i have no idea why, i have tried many things like unstalling all USB drivers, moving the USB to another slot, and even trying it on other computer's but still no luck. I have not spilled water/food on the USB and i kept the USB in a room temperature controlled room nor does the USB get hot or anything so i'm not sure what's happened, thank you!

BTW, my usb is a logitech 8gb and when i plug it in i can see the light flashing from the USB which means that it's plugged in.
