I received no response from you, so I contacted another organization. They have communicated with me letting me know they are working the problem. I have no inclination to either ask for your assistance or refer you to others in the future.

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts hope it helps
Flash drives are used like floppy discs. Take off the cover, plug in the drive to a USB port and wait for the computer to acknowledge it. Usually it will get a drive letter assignment of E: unless you have multiple optical drives or a card reader that may have that drive letter in use. Transfer files by copying them in the file explorer. I like to have two windows open (one with the folder the file is starting in and the other the window for the contents of the flash drive).
Alternatively, open the file in the appropriate program and (for most OS versions) File > Save As and browse to the flash drive. Check the file name and click OK.
To use a file on any computer, open the file explorer and browse to the flash drive. Double click on the file and the associated program (or another that handles that file type) will open if it is on that computer. Then you can edit the file. If you are using a different computer, when you return to your main computer. Transfer the file back to the Documents (My Documents) or other folder in the File Explorer.
Make sure the USB port is active (try another if the flash drive doesn't work). Some USB ports can be disabled for power savings or security. On Windows the first is an Advanced Setting from the screen saver. The second is found in the device manager (Control Panel > System and Security > System for Win7).
Try any other computer but not open drive only see if they can read it. Also change USB port, sometimes some ports dont accept devices. Also check for latest antivirus software last such case viruses dont let me read any of my USB drives. If driver works to oter PC then you have virus.
do you hear the USB hardware installation tones from windows when you plug in the the drive? If so then you are know the USB port is working. If you do not..try other USB ports. If you hear the noise...Right click on My Computer and click on Manage. Click on Storage and then Disk Management...see if you are having a conflict of drive mappings (i.e. F:/ or E:/)..you can relable the drive letters by right clicking on the drive in the right pane and selecting Change Drive Letter.
More then likely you have a defective thumbdrive,buy a new one and see if you still have the problem, you can all ways take it back if you still have the problem, Remember new ones can also be defective.
It is possible that windows is trying to assign a drive letter to the thumb drive that is already assigned to another drive. You will need to go to Disk Management to see if the thumbdrive is showing up there and then try to assign it a drive letter.
