Does it have 'U3' capability....? They're starting to put funky partions
onto the USB sticks which allow Winbloze to run application direct from
The long/short of it is that there's a CD image on the stick and then
the partions. If this is the case then you may be able to fix it by
removing this funky image.
I found this out as the photo print stations at London Drug can't see
the second (real) partion and says 'no photos on stick'...
