Strange USB stick Properties

When I go to Properties on my Diesel USB stick, I end up here: Control Panel\System and Security\System

I don't have the faintest idea why that one stick behaves like that. All my other sticks show real properties. Any ideas??

Hi Wolfgang -

Are you attempting this from the Start menu? Do you have Computer display as a Menu instead of Link?

It could really only be that rightclicking on the drive is actually rightclicking Computer, in which case Properties would show the System page.
