USB problem.

It sounds to me that the computer you used to format the USB stick has malfunctioned. I suggest you use another computer to put the USB stick right. When you have done that see if it works again in the malfunctioning computer. If it fails go to computer management and then Device manager and try and update all the USB controllers.
If that does not clear your problem then it may be that the USB devicess for that computer have failed.
