It's possible that your problem is not the USB stick but that the device you are plugging it into isn't giving it enough power eg an older laptop. My new stick will not work with my old laptop unless I supply power to it from the mains or a newish pc via a 'Y' cable. Try the stick on a different machine to see if it will work with more 'juice'.
