Yes, it's called Super Glue  ;) .. You'll have to give us more than that... What's wrong with it ?

Is the USB stick recognised when you plug it into Linux or Windows ?

Are there any error messages in either OS ?

Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail

Code: [Select]
lsusb

Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l

Well if you had the USB stick plugged in when you ran those... the stick is DEAD, as it's not being detected AT ALL.
