Why is my USB not working on any computer?

I was using my USB stick last night and I knew that I would need it at school today. I turned off my computer and pulled out my USB. When I went to school today, I plugged it in to the computer and it kept saying “USB Device Not Recognised.”

We tried it on 3 different laptops. When I got home, I turned on my computer and plugged in my USB. I got the same message. I tried all the different ports on my home computers. I got the same message every time.

My entire computer is backed up on my USB as well as my school stuff and I would really like to get all my files back. If downloading new software to fix this can be avoided, I would greatly appreciate it.
