Answer:
Answer:

Hi, we also faced this problem after updating a few systems to 10.13.1.


An additional reboot after the install fixed the problem for us.


It seems to be related to Finder as you can open Terminal and cd /Volumes and browse the USB drive there even when it isn't opening in Finder.

I have just encountered the same problem. To resolve it I closed all open apps but left the usb memory stick plugged in and restarted the computer. After the re-boot the stick showed on the desktop and in Finder - phew, relief! I was then able to use the memory stick normally.
