    Is there a way to do my idea? You plug in the flash drive and when you double-click it, and background pops up with a little box for you to enter a password. I don't think any apps can do this, but is it possible?

    Sorry, :p I wasn't even sure where to post this.

    If you want to use it on Mac and Windows and you want it encrypted, use Truecrypt (www.truecrypt.org). I don't know if MacFUSE (which will be installed by truecrypt) will work with NTFS, so you may need for format the disk with FAT32.

    The downside to FAT32 is a 2 GB file size limit when used on a Mac.

    You could also use PGP Whole Disk Encryption, but that can be expensive if you don't have a real need. Truecrypt is pretty slick.

    Mac's built-in encrypted disk images work only on Mac OS.
