Pen drives instantly get infected with viruses as you use it with many computers. So i suggests you to scan your drive before accessing it. And DON'T use autorun when opening it. Autorun is most common virus of pen drives. Update your antivirus and scan your whole system. Then try to open it again.

You can try Pen drive data recovery software if your drive is not accessible. It is non-destructive and read only utility designed to recover deleted, formatted or missing files and folders even from logically crashed, corrupted or formatted pen drive storage media. It safely retrieves files including text documents, videos, images, pictures, digital music etc from pen drive mass storage media.

It is possible that the folders are protected and need password or something like that to access it. Check the status or properties of the folders you are accessing. Have a look at following threads for some help on protection stuff:
