    Default USB keydrive on Desktop

    Hi

    I jsut bought a rundisk USB keydrive 128Mb and I am running Windows xp. I'm curious as to how to get an icon on the desktop when the device is plugged in, so I can open it and drag and drop etc. Mac's do it.

    Thanks.

    Right click, - create shortcut - it will say it cannot create it there, do you want it on the desktop - Yes

    Hi

    It seems you can't do it on Windows then without having to get 3rd party software.

    When I plug my flash drive in on Win2KPro I get an icon in the tool bar. No special software.

    Hi

    Yes however I am on Windows xp. Macs have it appear when it is in on the desktop, which is where I would like it.
