The device come up as Unknown when the connector is broken, there are 4 pins, one of them is not touching the board inside the stick properly.
This might be fixable by making sure the 4 pins are soldered properly to the board and none of them are cut.
If the memory stick works on another computer right now, then that is not the issue. Follow this page to re-install the usb adapters on the computer http://www.fixya.com/support/r569923-usb_devices_not_recognised_or_not

The device does not have a device driver: When a device driver for a device is not available, Device Manager displays the device as Unknown Device and puts it in the Other devices branch. This is very common with universal serial bus (USB).
Most USB and IEEE 1394 devices function correctly without additional device drivers because they are configured by the drivers that are included with Windows for these bus types. However, an additional device driver is needed if the device does not fit the defined and supplied Windows class drivers. If the bus cannot identify the device, it interprets the device as a composite device and then reports it as such in Device Manager.
iF yOUR usb is working fine dont worry about it.
When you install a non-Plug and Play device, the resource settings for the device are not automatically configured. Depending on the type of device that you are installing, you may have to manually configure these settings. Instructions for doing so should be supplied in the manual that came with your device

To configure devices:
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
