USB Drive keeps disconnecting

I have a very weird problem with my Windows Ultimate x32. When I connect an USB flash drive to any USB port on the system the autoplay menu pops ups, and the it disconnects and connects again and again.i am using Asus X80L.but my other usb drives like external hard disk,modem are running good on my laptop.
and the error says: Error 0x80070022.The wrong diskette is in the drive.

I would try this tutorial:
AutoPlay - Turn On or Off

Note what it says about hardware detection service. Try both AutoPlay enabled and disabled. See if it stabilizes.

Is this pendrive working fine on another machine? If so copy all files from pendrive to a folder and format pendrive. Now you can copy the files back. Just perform a drag and drop

So the usb pendrive is damaged (either data or hardware)
Are you able to see the drive in "command prompt"? Try to move the data to your harddisk. I assume the dirve is H:

DIR H:

do you see any files?

Maybe you can recover some files using diskrecovery software (don't no which one). After that repartition and refornat the pendrive. But be carefull... maybe the pendrive has died

Are the contacts clean?
Does anything change if you wiggle the USB stick inside the port or (gently) push it in various directions?

have you tried to uninstall the driver in device manager while the pen drive is connected. pull out thumb drive. then re-boot pc and reconnect the thumb drive? also alternate the connection to different usb ports?
