I've got a bunch of files from previous computers saved on 4GB Cruzers, two of which are now unusable.
One of them immediately crashes the computer and I have to reboot.
The other one now goes into BSD as soon as I plug it in and the computer emits a tone. Windows then goes through some info gathering before it reboots on its own and the tone stops.
The first one is more severe but they're both now unusable and I can't access the files anymore. Is there any hope to ever recovering the files?
Windows 10. Other USB drives work fine. Using a different USB port doesn't have an effect.

Can the machine boot with the drive plugged in? If so then You can go into disk manager and unassign the drive letter. That will allow you to scan and fix errors on the drive from within diskmanager. Hope you get your files.

Yes, we know that is the problem so let me rephrase the question:
With the Cruzer plugged in and you boot the machine does the Cruzer then show in Device Manager?
Important files = Backed up files
