If you are on anetwork I think you may no longer be allowed to use USB sticks.  A lot of companies are barring their use in Policy as it is a good way to infect a network and collect information from the company.

I would contact your network administrator for verification.  I would think before they did such a policy they would have sent out an email to everyone though.
