Knowing how to troubleshoot can help you narrow to the causes and fix it. Here are some useful tips you can do before engaging a data recovery specialist.
Eject and remove the thumb drive from the initial USB port and try it on another available port to check whether the thumb drive is readable or not. If it is still not readable, then try it on another computer or laptop USB port. A salient point to note is that for the flash drives to be readable by both the Mac and Windows computer, the thumb drive format should be FAT32. Otherwise, windows formatted thumb drive can only be read by windows computer and not the Mac computer.
Check that the flash drive of higher USB version is compatible with the USB ports of the laptop or computer. Ensure that the USB ports are of at least the same USB version for the thumb drive to work and be readable.
