When you connect the flash drive does it alret you (The following device has been connected)

If not check your device manager. (Start>Control Panel>Sytem Hardware tab. Device manager)

Check for ANY yellow exclamation points as that may be a driver issue.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

I think I'd try running chkdsk /r on that drive.

Start/Run...chkdsk X: /r, where X equals the drive letter assigned the flash drive. Be sure to put a blank space between the colon and /r.
