Memory stick question

If a memory stick fails on one computer but operates fine on others, is the problem with the stick or the computer?

I have this problem, updated drivers, and tested the computer with a phone plugged into the USB. Had the same problem with the phone. Sent the computer in for repair, they tested it and said the computer USB was fine and the problem is with the stick.

I would appreciate some opinions about this

I would build a Linux Live USB disk and boot from that. If the computer can see the drive to boot from it, it leads to believe it to be an OS issue. Get to the Linux environment and see if it can detect USB drives.

My bad - it is a flash drive. The flash drive is fine in other computers and the problem also happened when I put my iphone into the laptop. Sorry I can't edit the title.

So neither the phone or the USB drive works in the port on the computer? What about other devices? Keyboards, mice, etc? How many USB ports does it have and are all of them not working or just one? Or is there only one?
