All of a sudden, my flash drive isn't working. It's just a few months old (Samsung 16gb). I've tried using it in several computers, and none of them will recognize it. No lights, not in My Computer, etc.

Is there any way for me to do anything about this? Should I take it to a professional? Or will that even work?

They aren't repairable, it's just a 'block' of flash memory with no moving parts.
You may just have had bad luck and ended up with a "bad" one.
