I have a USB stick that seems to have a problem.
I used on a PC to put files on it.
Then on a laptop they had lot of troubel reading these files.
Only after several attemps Windows did see the files and could use them.
Now I can't see any content what so ever on my USB drive. windows suggests a format?

i would test the stick first : (to be sure the stick is ok or bad)
-on different usb ports
-on different PC's
if the same problem on different pc's it is probably bad - try to format it.
