Memtest86 - my computer isnt seeing the USB drive on bootup?

I've downloaded Memtest86 on my USB drive, but my computer isnt seeing it during bootup to run it?

I've gone into bios while the USB was plugged in, but did not see anything referencing my USB drive to boot from it?

Create a bootable CD instead. Download Memtest86+ (you want the 2nd one Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)). Unzip it then create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called ImgBurn which will do this easily.

You could also use the Memtest ISO file with PART 2 in the tutorial below to create a bootable USB flash drive with.
