Hi!

Maybe you have used the USB stick for NTFS/Windows in the past? Try to write a new MBR to the stick.
Ref: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/install-a-new-mbr-to-your-usb-flash-device/

(Instructions for Ubuntu):

    Open a terminal and type sudo su
    Type apt-get install mbr
    Type fdisk -l to find out which device is your flash drive
    Type install-mbr /dev/sdx (replacing x with your flash device)


Regards, Tobias
