I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but I hope the following will answer your question.

A stick drive typically refers to a usb flash drive (also called thumb drive or flash stick). On a PC, when plugged into a USB port, will show up as the next available drive letter.

Assuming you are referring to a flash drive
1) With the flash drive *not* plugged in, open your browser and look at the drives that exist
2) Plug in the flash drive; your computer should recognize it and assign the next available drive letter
3) Refresh your browser, if needed, and the new drive that shows up is your flash drive
