I/O device error on (working) flash disk only

By shadow_wing006 ·
Hi, I'd appreciate help on this. :) Searched around on the net but found no solutions.

My USB 2.0 flash disk works on other computers; it won't work on mine, but it used to. Now, it won't read the volume name when I insert it into the port. Instead, it shows up as Removable Disk (Drive Letter:).

When I click on it, it says "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error." It shows up as Event ID 51 on Event Viewer.

iPods and cellphones work fine--data transfers were okay. I inserted a high-quality flash disk once. The computer read it, but data transfer was really slow.

OS is Win XP Home SP2.

I'd like to reiterate that the flash disk works on other computers, so it's not dead.
