    Format your USB module, do not password, then retry. If it will not reformat, or if it will not accept the password, you have your answer.

    Try using hp usb format utility to format the drive.
    If that still does not work, try using the hdd low level format tool, make sure you format the right drive.

    Maybe when he said "Wireless USB Stick" he meant wireless USB adapter although most newer laptops include wireless.

    hi raybay & gguera ,
    first of all HE is not a HE im a she , what i meant that it was my IP address that was the problem i meant that my wireless connection was showing up as disconnect on my desktop not my laptop i reconected it and i got online on my laptop first time ,and it was a USB stick not adapter .

    Sorry for the gender mixup. It was actually me who said "HE". No way to tell that from just your user name
