Most probably Windows will be able to detect the problem and recognize your USB drive.
Click Start-> Run, type Devmgmt.msc, opening the Device Management. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers and right click on the USB drive which is showing error or not recognized issue.
Select properties from the right click menu and select the Power Management tab. Click to clear the “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power” check box, and then click OK. Now from the the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes
If you are still not able to solve the problem, power off the machine, disconnect the USB, pull the battery), and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Restart your PC and it should be able to detect the USB. In this case you are actually restarting the mother board by removing the power and this should solve the issue in most of the cases.
