If you can get into the bios check your boot order. It could of changed.
When you do a questionable bios update (flash) and a strange format anything could of happened.

What problem were you having to make you decide you needed to flash the bios?

The only thing that shows in boot order is my CD drive, since I unplugged the usb and the SSD isn't found

The Asus G73JH model tends to GSOD(grey screen of death) on a variety of games until the vbios is updated. I needed to update my bios to update my vbios.

My computer ran fine after the flash, it's just when I went to format the USB is when things went wrong

To me it sounds like you just bios and vbios flashed yourself right out of a notebook.

Hang in there others will have other opinions.

The drive isn't find in another computer, neither in bios, driver manager, or disc management utility.

The drive appears bricked
