    If its USB take it out of the case and plug into PC or a docking station, most likely the USB interface has died

    If it does not find it whatsoever, by that i mean no message at all on your PC nothing new in administrative tools- disk management when you plug it in
    try banging each thin side on your palm of your hand a few times as it might be stuck

    if that don't work destroy it
