Default Vista hates my USB memory stick

I have a 1GB Kingston memory stick. Everytime I put it in vista want me to format it.

I did a format thinking it would fix it, but nope. Vista is just hating my usb stick. Any help plz?

Try doing a format on a windows XP comptuer, at the very least after that we will know if it just vista, or your memory stick.

Did a format in XP, and still nothing. The memory stick itself still works, but every time I put it into my Vista machine it wants to format it.

WOW I never though I would need a driver for a USB memory stick. I guess I'll try searching for the drivers.
