Here's a strange one. Got a new flash drive. My first step, always, is to use disk utility to erase and reformat the flash drive into FAT32, single partition.

But when I plug in my latest flash drive into my Macs, I see the U3 Install Disc icon on my desktop.

What gives? How can U3 still be on it after a reformat? More importantly, how do I get rid of it?
