USB no longer recognized by computers

About a year ago I used Universal USB Installer to install the Ubuntu Desktop ios onto my USB. Computers no longer recognize it as far as I can tell. It doesn't appear as a device with removable storage when I open the My Computer folder. I've tried putting it into another computer and the same thing happens.
