Have you tried the devices on another computer in case the issue is with the USB ports.
It is unlikely that both devices are full to capacity but that is one thing that can cause such issues as this.
You may need to try and recover the data from the thumb drives so here a couple of links to help http://download.cnet...4-10753287.html and http://3d2f.com/tags...sh/disk/repair/
Try Recuva first as it has a good success rate.
Please note that I am not suggesting that you use any other form of product or service offered at the links.

It was Word documents I was trying to edit & save, & I'm wondering if it's something to do with Word? I've had similar problems before: computer sometimes says I don't have permission to save a Word doc in a particular folder & I have to save it somewhere else. Rebooting usually solves this, till the next time. (And no, there isn't an "administrator" except myself.)
Seems weird to me!

Yes it is odd behavior, have you installed all important updates for MS Office.
