    Try a different USB port, sometimes usb ports can die. if you are trying on the front usb, switch to the back usb ports. If the problem persists, maybe the usb thumb drive is drawing too much DC current and causing the desktop to shutdown, indicating that the thumb drive is failing or have already failed. Hope this helps, take care!
