What case do you have? Is it the front panel USB connectors?

Run a virus scan and check whether your USB device - I presume it is a pendrive - is infected. Your computer also needs to be scanned and cleaned.

If after this the problem persists, check your ports with any good pendrive. If it is OK then one can suspect the problem pendrive is faulty. I would backup all data in it , full format it and check again to be doubly sure.

Try touching the bare metal in the rear of the case before and as you insert the USB. It sounds like a short in the front panel USN connectors.
