flash drive showing as unallocated
 
Hi,

I am pluging my usb flash drive and i cannot open it. When i try to do fdisk -l it is not showing and in gparted it is showing as unallocated and with 1mb disk size.

when doing lsusb it shows that the usb is plugged in:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 058f:1234 Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Drive

Tries to use testdisk but I am unable to find the drive anywhere.

Do you have any ideas??

thanks!

Is the drive maybe encrypted?
