Maybe it can have something to do with this (http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U3)

I have the same problem. Ubuntu is not opening my USB drive. It used to work well with my Compaq, but the problem has started now with a Dell laptop :confused:

Could you try removing it ant plugging it in and then post the output of lsusb again and dmesg | tail
It seems strange that it would dissaper, I'm thinking it may be down to a auto run program on the usb stick (can't remember it's name).
Also can you post the output of fdisk -l (l = lower case L) if you don't see anything try running it using sudo

Could you post the output of

tailf /var/log/messages

Do you have any automatic setting enabled for media? It looks like it thinks it is a camera. Try disabling all auto loading programs, it is under the preferences menu but I can't remember what it is called.
