I just had a similar experience with a 256MB Sandisk flashdrive. I put it in
whilst in my normal account (No admin priviliges) and nothing happened. I then
logged in as admin and tried it and bingo it worked - I flip back to my normal
account and now I can see it. It just seems it wouldn't install it unless i was
logged in as admin.
