    My first guess would be that the stick was once removed without the "Safely Remove" 
    function (or properly ejecting it) while a write operation was still active and therefor corrupted the File System.

    I think a simple format should fix this problem (all data on the drive will be lost).

    Hello, is it possible for you to explain a little bit more?  It would help a great deal if you could post a capture screen of what you mean.  Is this a new flashdrive?  if not, Did it work ok before?
