What does Disc Management say about allocated and unallocated space, the number of partitions and their file system? That's the first step of telling the meaning of "it is seen OK".

it's a removable drive and there's no media in it. Seems like your flash drive is broken. Such a big flash drive might be rather new so still have warranty. Back to the shop then. It's easy for them to check on their own machines.
