no lights and doesn't work Sandisk Cruzer Crossfire 512 Mb

Hi there!
I have a trouble USB flash drive Sandisk Cruzer Crossfire 512 Mb.

SN: SDCZG-512 (AX 06066UB) (this is the digits at the side of my Flash)

Everything seems good, but one (beautiful) day someone pull off my flash
from USB port on laptop, without confirmation on Windows XP (Safety
Removing).

Since that happened, my flash drive didn't recognize by any desktops,
laptops etc. Even LED on it didn't light. Totally, no life signs.

However, can you explain me, why it stopped work?

Thanks,
Egor

Pulling out the flash drive without using the Safely Remove Hardware button can cause data corruption.

 

Now this does not mean it would kill the flash drive just like that. Have you tried other USB ports? On a desktop computer, I would prefer using the one found at the back for sufficient power. Check as well the status of the flash drive under Device Manager. This normally shows under Disk Drives and Universal Serial Bus Controllers. 

 

If there are no errors or no signs at all of your flash drive (on any computers) then check if it is still under warranty.
