My Xbox will not recognize my new 8 GB Xbox SanDisk flash drive

My flash drive came in the mail today from Microsoft.  I inserted it into the 360 console and it worked fine for about 45 minutes. I took out the flash drive before making a save and now the Xbox doesn't recognize it any more.  Is there anything I can do to fix it such as reformatting it and how would i do that?

Hi, you didn't put the stick into a computer USB port and try to read what's on the stick did you ? Anyway you could try configuring the stick again on the console, if that doesn't work try formatting the stick and then configuring it on the Xbox.

If the console doesn't even see the stick so you can format it then try formatting the stick on your PC instead and then configuring it on the console.

If you pulled it while your system was reading off of it, you could have erased it.
