Pocket Fuzzies?
Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the USB Drive. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

Short of that, goto HP site and get their USB format tool (get it here: http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 ) and try reformatting... if that doesn't work, it is hosed and only I can fix it so let me know ;-)

Insert your memory stick into your USB port go to my computor and see if it has been detected, if so right click on it and use the option format, this shall clear all your stored data but it wil restore your memory stick.

Can i install u3 smart launchpad on my kingston data traveller G2


well U3 system software is pre-loaded to USB devices by the manufacturer and requires special flash drive controller line and thus it is not possible to install u3 by user.

Good Luck.
