My memory key got broken after it fall on the floor. When I insert it
into usb slot, an error message shows up in /var/log/messages. Perhaps
you should have a look into that file. Another think is that these error
messages are somewhat cryptic and misguiding. I my case, it took me a
lot of time to figure out that the device is broken. Googling is not
much helpful. I was not able to find a good information about USB
related error codes.
