I believe what the OP wants is for the Debian Live system to occupy the
2nd partition of the USB stick.  Windows, in my experience, only sees
the first partition of a USB stick.  So if you want to use the same
stick for Debian Live and for data that is accessible in Windows, you
need this:

/dev/sda1 - FAT32 data partition
/dev/sda2 - Debian Live
/dev/sda3 - live-rw partition (optional)
