I have inserted my usb memory stick into my sons laptop to install some progs but his pc is not reading it, any idea guys??

Has the stick been removed from a computer without using the Safely Remove Hardware facility?

A VERY common cause of failure of these devices is unplugging them without any consideration that they might still be doing something.

no I always insured that the removable disc was finished before removing it.
It has worked fine always

but as I was saving the file windows was installing a program which may have cuased the saving error
