I have a new Mac Mini. My 128meg thumb drive which works on my Winxp laptop is not recognized on plugging into the mac. I had hoped to use it between both ass I travel and can't afford an iBook yet. Any advice an what the problem could be?

I have a dodgy freebie 64MB drive and it works on XP at work and comes up straight away on the Powebook FAT32 format

Is it plugged into an Apple keyboard? Some of these devices, especially USB2.0 ones, won't work when plugged into a low power USB1.1 port.
