Icon05 New computer sees flash drive as local hard drive

This is a weird one...

I got a new computer, Win7 64 bit. For some reason, it's recognizing my 64Gb flash drive as a local hard dive rather than a removable storage device.

I've done some preliminary Googling about this, and haven't yet found a fix for it. It's not really a big deal, as the flash drive still works and my synch software recognizes it and synchronizes correctly. Since there is no option to 'safely remove hardware,' though, I'm concerned about file corruption.

Has anyone heard about this or know a fix for it?
