What happened to it, what kind of malfunction?
Is it detected in windows, can you format it or not?

Try rebooting your motherboard. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be “rebooted” also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.

See response 2 !!

Other than the causes at the link referred to in that....

- the USB port may be physically damaged - in that case NO USB device may be reconized when plugged into that part - try it in a DIFFERENT USB port.

- if you or anyone else have dropped the USB drive or have otherwise physically damaged it, the drive won't be recognized properly when plugged into ANY USB port on ANY computer.

- note that if the USB port wiring to a case port or a port in a slot space from the header on the mboard has the +5v and ground for that circuit backwards, a USB flash drive will be damaged instantly when plugged into that mis-wired port and will never work again

- some desktop mboards, e.g. many Asus models, have 9 pin headers for both two USB ports and a single firewire port that are identical. If you wire up one or two USB ports to the firewire header, or wire up a firewire port to a header for two USB ports, nothing happens until something is plugged into the mis-wired port, but whatever you plug into ir is damaged instantly and can never work again, and your mboard may be damaged in a short time

Yea what tubesandwires said is the memory stick recently bought if so return it for an exchange for an new one or get a refund.
What was it doing just before it malfunctioned?
Have you tried it on another computer?

for last 3years it was giving speed about 6.5 - 7.5 MBps but on 09/06/12 the speed was 8-9MBps. I was shoicked to see it and then i connect it to my LCD TV but LCD didn;t played the movies clearly. Picture stops after every 25-30 sec

Then i again connect it to my PC and this s--- happens.

I tried on other windows and PC but same thing happens. Is this just a crap(Non-use able) left???

Yep its crap, sounds like the chips (not potato ones) inside the memory stick overloaded or was about to die anyway or it could be the capacitor inside, its worth opening it if its not brand new and its out or warranty, if its still got its warranty send it back to Kingston.
