USB sticks not recognized anymore

My Prusa Mini 3D is not recognizing my USB stick anymore.  It's formatted in FAT32 and can be loaded on my multiple laptops -- but the Mini is not recognizing it anymore.  When I boot it (and reboot it) it says "No USB" on the screen.

Any ideas?  I have reformatted it as FAT32 on a Windows machine.  I've used the same USB stick to upgrade it to 4.1 firmware. 

I've also tried another 32 GIB USB-2 flash drive -- no luck.  🙁

randito has tried another USB stick, so it may not be that.

 

If you don't want to buy a third USB stick to try then I would recommend contacting Prusa Support via the chat feature on the Prusa e-shop page as it sounds like you may have a dodgy USB port.

Thanks for the replies everyone.  I tried a couple of USB sticks and found one that did.  A brand-new 32G USB3 didn't work but the smaller 16GB USB2 did.   The cool one that came with the printer isn't working anymore. 

Here's the one that's working for me.  16GB USB2 (not an affiliate link)

I have noticed that this one is significantly faster than the included one.  Perhaps, it was on the "edge" of not working.  Either way, I'm back to printing again. 

Sorry for the freak-out.

Agreed.  It's working for now but I will keep an eye on it.
