i had the same issue with a memory stick and it was because my av removed the .exe file from the usb stick. without the .exe file the memory stick showed as a defective device i ended up getting another one and lucky i didnt have anything important.

Do you know if i can find this .exe?
When i run my PC with Ubuntu i can open the stick and paste the file there.

The most likely reason that you can't use it is that avast detected a virus and modified or deleted the file to make it safe. tThe file you mention - ogcikeq.com - is a virus that is used to grab username and password info for online games. It has several aliases. You need to make sure it does not propogate to the rest of your system when you plug it in. Take a look at the page below under File System Modifications.

Yeah, maybe running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php) will be able to remove it automatically if you don't want to do it manually. Also, you can try Flash Disinfector (http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/Flash_Disinfector.exe)
