I friend called in a panic because he can't access data on a USB SanDisk Cruz Blade flash stick
He is seeing:
"No Microsoft Volume" Device Descriptor Request Failed
Computer / Disk Management Report, "No Media"
However, the "SanDisk Cruz Blade USB Device" does show up in Devices under Drives

He has access to both a Windows 7 & Windows 10 Systems

When this happens with USB External Drives I just pull the drive and and connect directly to the computer. However, what can he do in this situation?

Thanks in Advance
