that's odd. it should work whichever file system you use. I already tried it before on an iPod with 1 GB internal storage. Windows was able to detect the drive and it appeared. make sure you are using an admin account.
make sure the drive is plugged in properly on the USB port. another reason is if the flash drive is not yet formatted.
Just a tip for those who are interested in using their USB flash drive as an extension to the virtual RAM of Microsoft Windows or to extend the virtual memory of the operating system. Using your USB flash drive to increase the amount of virtual RAM or virtual memory or pagefile to be specific is fine. But by doing this, you are also shortening the lifespan of your USB flash drive. Remember that USB flash drives have limited numbers of writes. In normal usage, it will take a long time for the writes to run out. But if the USB flash drive is used as RAM where millions of transfers are done each minute, it will definitely decrease the life of the flash drive.
