What is this? USB DRIVE

Recently, I plugged my usb drive into my Windows 7 x64 computer and I was going to get a file instead I got all this

What is this? USB DRIVE-weird.png

So, is it because I used it on 32 bit machines before? Is there anyway to get my files back?

What is the name of the virus that gets passed around on usb drives? I can't remember

Have you scanned the USB drive with AV software?
