usb stick not working

When I put a usb storage device (ANY) into my computer it doesn't work.
Some things I noticed. In my computer I have drives that don't work from drive letter e to k..
they are all removable storage drives. They don't get deleted when i move my usb stick.
does anyone have a solution?

check the number of USB Root Hubs listed in the device manager.  You should have 1 for each USB port connection.
Then double click on "my computer"  and delete all showing USB drives that are still showing devices.  
Make sure there are no conflicts or yellow ! on the USB hubs in the device manager.
If all looks good, reboot and attempt to reconnect you storage device.
