If it works on the laptop I'd probably copy everything off the stick onto a folder there, then use the laptop to reformat it. Once it's reformatted try it in the desktop, and if it works there then you should be fine to put the files back onto it Smiley
Hope that helps.

Re: Usb memory stick

Are the any OS updates waiting to be installed? ...................Found in the past the USB ports sometimes get disabled when updates are waiting to be installed.
