    The jump drive may be defective, or the USB port may be defective. Have you tried plugging it into another USB port? Does it work on another computer? Have you tried using anything else in that USB port?

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Ok. Plug in the jump drive, then run Disk Utility. What does it tell you about the drive?

    Still need to know which model Jump Drive it is. They make a lot of different ones. V10, S70, TwistTurn, Firefly, etc etc etc.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Ok. Well the drive is compatible out-of-the-box with Mac OS X, and since Disk Utility can see it, you should be able to format it.

    ALTHOUGH… if Disk Utility can see it, then I'm wondering why nothing, or why you think nothing, is happening. When you insert the drive, does it show up in the Finder, on the left-side of the window with your other drives?

    In Disk Utility, select the drive, click on the Partition tab, then tell us how the drive is formatted (FAT32, NTFS, HFS+, etc).

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Ok. So Disk Utility does see it, Finder doesn't. DU says it's formatted in FAT so the Finder should be seeing it. My only suggestion at the moment is to re-format it. If you still need to share it with Windows PCs, use FAT32. If not, use Mac OS Extended (Journaled), aka HFS+.

    EDIT: BTW… I just had a thought. Is there any chance there the thumb drive is encrypted? I have no personal experience with encryption software, but without that software installed, I'm wondering if that would explain why the Finder can't see the drive.
