    A new USB stick may be in your future

    A couple quick things
    => Don't use any hubs. Test the stick connected directly to computer USB ports. And try each port
    => Test the stick on someone else's computer
    => Look in your Windows Event Log for any relevant messages

    When it comes down to it though, unless the problem is something easily identifiable and easily fixed, look for that USB stick in your future ;)
