Commited a stupid, USB stick not seen now!

Good morning, Everyone,

I have committed a stupid! At least I think I have!!!! Yesterday afternoon I was trying various different programmes to see if I could copy faster, and I was using a USB stick. I am fairly certain that I ejected it at one point, and I thought that I had waited until the 'Open Devices and Printers' had said it was safe. This morning the stick said, in 'Windows Explorer', that it was corrupt. I tried to re-format it, but that hasn'y worked and now the computer doesn't even see it!!!

Does anyone have any idea how I can get the stick seen by the computer and then formatted?

Many thanks in advance for all suggestions.
