Can't access USB files!

I am using v1.5.107 with Windows 10, I tried to flash my large External Hard Drive with LMDE 4 and it said an error before it even started and then I can’t access my USB anymore! I looked at the article Etcher killed my USB stick but I either didn’t understand it or it didn’t help. I don’t know what to do!

Hi, In the article ( did you try the steps below “How to Recover a USB Drive or SD Card” -> “Using Windows” if so which steps did you try and what was the result?

Thank you so much! I just tried those steps and it worked! It didn’t work when I just tried to use diskpart to format it I had to use balenaEtcher to write an ISO file onto it so I can access it!
