Administrative Event ID 11 Shows After Plugging In USB Flash Drive

Event ID 11 (Warning) = Disk Controller
Device = SanDisk Cruzer, 8GB, Formatted FAT32
All USB Ports affected.

The device works perfectly.

Any ideas on how to eliminate the warning ?

My use of the Cruzer indicates FAT32 to be the best formatting choice.
Still, I would like to get rid of the administrative warning every time it's plugged
Thanks for the response.
