We have experienced a few different USB flash drives that do not work with Windows 7 and can even end up with a blue screen.

If the system the USB drive works on is running an older version of Windows, I would start to consider that it might be a compatibility issue between the OS, USB controller and the flash drive.

I would see if a different make or model flash drive works with your laptop.

We contacted the manufacture of one of our flash drives and they provided a work-around using compatibility mode when initializing the specific model of drive.
