Unlike external modems and drives, pen drives have no external power source. They rely on sufficient power being available from a USB port and on some systems there just isn't enough power there -- hence you get the connect/disconnect problem.

The solution is to buy a Mains-powered USB Hub and make sure the mains adapter is supplied with it (some can run from the mains but the mains adapter isn't included).

Plug the hub into the mains and into a USB port on your PC, then plug your USB flash drive into the hub.
