you could try going into the pen drive then click tools, folder options, then the view tab then look for "show hidden files and folders" click on that to set it to show them (no garantees)

Can any other computer read the contents?

Try seeing if anything can be accessed via command line. Goto Start > Run and type in "cmd".

This will bring up the black command Window. then type:
(x being the drive letter of your USB drive)
Quote:
x: <press enter>
dir <press enter>
Does this bring up the contents of the drive?

eck...I've never had the experience, personally, but I've been told by more senior technicians that if usb drives, or any solid state drives for that matter, fail because of reaching its limit for write and erase cycles that it is impossible to get the data back.

Edit: Almost impossible is a better description. Please correct me if I am wrong.
