USB: Help pls

I have a 16 GB USB. I formatted it in Win7 Fat32.
Computer doesn't recognize it first time. It makes a noise, but nothing happens. I take it out and plug it in 2nd time. This 2nd time, the computer, after making noise, recognizes the USB.
Does it need a driver or something to make the computer to recognize it the 1st time? Do I need to format it in NTFS please?
Your help's greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

Can you try this tutorial and see if this helps you at all:

USB Driver - General Fix for Problems

Generally, the format of the USB drives depends on what you want to use it for. For the most part, you should format it to NTFS.

Regards,
