It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.

SOURCE: usb device not recognize

You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.

Pny 2gb not recognized by windows vista


Try connecting it some other computers.
If it does not work at all, spend $8 to replace it.
If it does work, then it's either the "hardware" on your computer, or the Vista "software" (wrong/missing USB device-drivers).

Try disconnecting all external devices and reboot your laptop.
You must have all USB devices disconnected, memory stick, USB mouse or keyboard, Hard drives, flash cards ect.
After a reboot check your device manager for flags or exclamation marks and remove if present.
Again, re-boot your laptop and check your device manager.
Ounce you have cleared all marks from device manager and all is clear,
plugin your first USB device and check operation.
Please check your equipment manual for details on what USB ports and speeds are available for your required devices.
Hope this works for you.
Please rate ASAP
Thanks

USB Memory Key not Recognized on Desktop running Windows Vista


check the formats of the keys. if they are NTFS they might not be recognized by earlier Windows versions. What version of windows does the laptop computer use? It may be as simple as using the correct formatting (FAT or FAT32) on the USB memory key.
