I have a 8 GB Sandisk Cruzer USB drive that I just purchased a few weeks ago. I use two systems, viz Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional. When I connect my drive to Windows 7, it's working properly as an external USB drive; I can remove it by safely remove option. But an issue is arising when I connect it to a Windows XP machine. It's treated as an internal hard drive!! I cannot even safely remove it.
The file system is FAT32. I used other USB drives too, but this is kind of weird; I've never seen this issue.. What is the reason and how can I fix this problem?
