    Strange problem with one USB 3.0 port and one USB flash stick

    Not sure this can be fixed as a "windows 10" matter, but here goes:

    i have a lexar 8gb USB 3.0 flash drive. i have used it for many things and formatted it different ways and on different laptops. most recently i used it as the 'install windows 10' media.

    yesterday i put it into one of my laptops' 3.0 ports. nothing showing! not in diskmanagement, not in diskpart and not even in AOMEI partition assistant. the drive was not detected at all.

    now it gets stranger. first, i plugged the stick into all the other USB ports (2.0 and 3.0). all the other ones worked!

    so then i thought the port has a problem? i plugged different devices into that port, and they worked!

    in other words, the problem is that this ONE usb flash stick suddenly does not work in this ONE usb port !!

    i already tried the normal stuff like formatting, cleaning. this is just too strange for me. i also found a MS page that says 'uninstall the USB drivers; disable the USB suspended power settings'. did not work. at least the page shows there can be such a problem:
