Android Central Question

I could use the drive in my phone with no issues until one day I was browsing some files on my phone and it stoped beeing recognized out of the blue. It hasn´t worked on my device ever since, but it works just fine in the computer.

how can I fix this?

I already formated again to fat32 with no results.

Welcome to Android Central! Are you plugging the drive into the phone with a different plug than the one that goes into the PC? From what I can tell, that drive has separate microUSB and standard USB plugs. It's possible the drive's microUSB plug has failed, or perhaps there's a little bit of debris stuck in it.
