1). USB memory stick cannot be detected.
This problem can happen due to loose/fault connection, bad registry setting and more. So, as to this problem, you are supposed to firstly check the connection and then re-set the related system registry. But, if neither of them can fix your problem, you’d better ask an expert for help.
2). USB memory stick is write-protected or encrypted and cannot be accessed.
If your USB memory stick is write-protected, you are supposed to remove the write-protection at first. But, if your USB memory stick is encrypted and don’t remember the actual password, you’d better take chances with some password recovery tool.
3). USB memory stick cannot be removed off from your PC after using.

In this situation, you’d better check whether all the memory stick files or programs are completely closed or ended. The “Task Manager” could be a good platform for you to check.
