USB flash drive dies not detected at any laptops

After using the flash drive to my Sony Bravia TV to watch some videos, i tried to use it again on my laptop but it was undetected by any usb ports on any laptops. My USB ports are working, checked it all inside my Device Manager and also Disk Management but it does not to appear anywhere. Can it be recovered because lots of my important data is still inside this Kingston 32GB DT101G3
