usb stick detection problem

i got a problem with a usb stick, when plugged into computer i see the light on the stick turn on, and then off, and that's is. i thought it was finished, broken, untill i plugged it into a friends computer and it worked fine. i plugged it into the same computer on a different partition, same operating system, and the computer recognized it.
i went to computer management, kept an eye on what pops up when i plug it in, two things popped up, i updated the driver, nothing, i uninstalled the driver, plugged it in again, nothing.
any ideas would be appreciated.
