    I recently bought a new SUPER Talent Pico USB stick. Unfortunately, it isn't recognized by my MB (2009) at all - whether in Finder, System Profiler or Disk Utility, no sign of a stick.
    It works without any problem on my iMac, a MB Pro, as well as on every PC. Also, I tried to connect it over a USB hub, no problem there! It's recognized as you would expect it...
    I also tried FAT as well as HFS, no difference there...
    What I also tried was to reset PRAM and NVRAM, didn't help either.
    Once it was actually recognized but as soon as I ejected it and plugged it in again it didn't work again.

    • My MB runs on Snow Leopard, I've already tested stick successfully on Snow Leopard (MBP).
    • The MB seems to be at least capable of recognizing the stick as it worked
    • The system configuration seems to be capable of recognizing the stick as it works when connecting over a USB hub.
    • Maybe noteworthy might be that the USB stick is a kind of micro stick, but I don't think my MB is unable to handle that...

    Does anyone have any further ideas on what else to try? I'd be so thankful!
    Best regards

    What I forgot to mention is that other USB sticks are recognized without any problem...
