I burnt the USB Stick with the Ubuntu ISO, and can readily install unbuntu with that pendrive. But when I plug it in windows, windows does not detect it.

Can I make windows recognize it.

you should know, that windows only recognizes file-formats like FAT NTFS and else DOS-formats

when usb-stick has an unix-filesystem it happens that it is not readable for windows, unless you use the correct drivers.
