Experiencing an issue with a U3 USB thumb drive; the Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts whenever the drive is removed from the machine - it restarts if ejected, safely removed or simply pulled. Other USB drives that do not have the U3 feature are not experiencing this issue. OS is WinXP.

Info about the u3 Drives: They store your programs and passwords and offer other security features. And I'm curious if the U3 drive is supposed to restart the machine out of an abundance of caution.

Thank you for your help

I have a thumb drive with the U3 stuff and it doesn't reboot my machine. Have you looked for updated drivers?

Yes, the drivers are up to date. I know there are some compatability issues with the U3 and Vista, but there shouldn't be with XP should there?

I use mine on XP, Vista, 2003 Server and 2008 Server without any issues. Is there anything in your event logs related to the issue?
