    Does it work ok when plugged into a different computer?

    What version of Windows are you running? Have you tried connecting it to all of the usb ports?

    Many usb sticks have generic characteristics so Windows has no problem recognising them Some however need Windows to install a driver.

    If you are running Vista or Windows 7 you may want to turn of UAC then plug in the usb stick to see if Windows can install the driver. If that works you can turn UAC back on.
