I have a Sony USM32GM 32 GB USB Flash Drive and I can not get it to show up on any device.
I have tried it in Windows 7 Pro, and it will show up and try to install the driver, fail, and then it won't show up again unless I delete the driver, then it repeats.
I have tried it in Mac OSX 10.5.8 PPC, where, if I plug it into the USB port on the keyboard, it acknowledges it, saying that it can't get enough power. If I plug it directly into the computer, it won't show up at all, or anything.
Finally, I tried it in both my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS machine and my Zorin 6.4 LTS machine (Zorin 6 is based on Ubuntu 12.04), and it would not come up in any file manager, even under /media. I tried "lsusb" in terminal, and got:
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:2504 Standard Microsystems Corp.

MicroVault Flash Drive
The last one must be it! Is there another way to access it? I just want the data, even if I can't repair it! Also, wherever and whatever it is plugged into, the green light will flash on it, like it usually does. Also, I have tried it in EVERY port on each computer, with the same result.
Edit: The results of "lsblk" are:

Also, I forgot to mention that I have tried Testdisk and Photorec, both of which I am familiar with, but the drive will not show up in them.
