USB problem on laptop - not reconised but others are

  AroundAgain 17:11 17 Jan 2014

Hi I have an integral 32GB usb stick and it works fine on my PC (Win 7) and netbook (Win 7) but my laptop (Vista) won't see it, although it does light up as it should, so clearly connected.

My laptop (Vista) does recognise interal 2GB stick, and other usb devices

I've reformatted the stick (32GB) but still not recognised. I've also checked in Devices and there are no yellow marks

Could anyone help re getting this to be recognised, please? I'd be very grateful
