    Flash Drives Have Become Invisible in (my PC & Disk Management)

    After installing Win-10 with a Flash Drive, The Flash Drive no longer visible either in My PC Folder or in Disk Management Thought this was a Isolated incident, Apparently not as 2 other flash dives i have have also disappeared, Really strange as 1 of the flash drives is less then 2 weeks old, Tried to find them using CMD & Diskpart but noting visible there either
    any other suggestions would be appreciated, Thank you all!!

    Flash Drive 1 16GB - Kingston DataTraveler 2.0
    Flash Drive 2 16GB - SanDisk Cruiser Blade 2.0
    Flash Drive 3 8GB - Was a Gift Dont Know Make 2.0

    My Motherboard is USB v3.0 (Incase u need this info)

    Try connecting them in a USB 2.0 port, if available. Also have a look in Device Manager (search for it) and see if USB devices are OK, no yellow question mark or anything. Otherwise you need to update your chipset and USB 3.0 drivers, see the motherboard's manufacturer site, support, drivers section. If they are Intel, I would also go directly to Intel's site for more recent drivers.
