Default USB Port Error

Hi all new to the forum, and have a urgent question!

I recently purchased a USB Flash drive to enable me to carry work between office and home.

I used it for the first 2 days at work and it worked fine, i brought it home and it doesn't work it keeps on giving me the error message "USB Device not recognised"

I thought it was the flash drive problem so i borrowed another flash drive(different brand). I placed it in my laptop at home and it worked!

BUT i put it in my desktop it gave me the error, so i placed it back into my laptop to find that it giving me the error now!

Have i damaged the flash drive? (i'm wondering if the ports on my desktop was faulty?)

how can i retrieve the info stored on the flash drives?

can the flash drives be repaired (as one of them is not my own)!

gratefully awating any help
