Hinansh mate if you have formatted the stick then there will not be anything on it. So can you see it in Device Manager?

Perhaps you've formatted it to a filesystem Windows won't recognize, or it doesn't have an assigned drive letter.

If you can find it in device manager, open Disk Management and see if it's in there. If it is, you can right click on it and "Change drive letter and paths" to assign it a letter to make it appear in my computer. If the partitions of the drive say "undefined" (in bottom of the window), there is an filesystem that Windows doesn't recognize or no partition at all.
