Kingston DataTraveler 32GB is not shown in Finder

I bought a Kingston DataTraveler 32GB USB stick.
I have to plug and pull it many times on different usb ports on my MBP before it is readable.
Sometimes it's found, but mounted only readable.
This is filesystem indipendent.
Currently I have to partitions on the stick:
16GB FAT
16GB Mac OS extended
On my windows and linux systems the stick runs well.
On the MBP (2008) of my colleague it's exactly the same issue.
I also changed the stick by Kingston during the guaranty.
The product is also available on the apple store and it must be compatible:

Hello Longstag & welcome to the forums...
I've found that (1) most thumbdrives take a bit to be read and loaded...more so when they are large and (2) jumping around on different ports just makes it that much harder to have a thumbdrive recognized.
Unplug all unnecessary USB devices and shut down. Restart twice, plugging in the thumbdrive as the 2nd. reboot begins and then wait for the entire contents to be read in.
Reducing the number of devices can help, and again, don't casually try multiple USB ports in quick succession. Once you find a working combination, stick with it and don't be in a hurry to have that drive show up on the desktop, etc.
I would also consider going back to a single windows partition on that 32gb td as well.
Good luck in any case.
