Yup; that's it.

Nice blue light that matches the rest of my nice blue lights and it works like a champ.

Good place to mention this:

For those who don't know already there is a neat trick to stop flash drives being attacked from the wicked autorun.inf virus (passed between computers via flash drives).

You use the command line, switching it to each of your flash drives using its letter, for example J:

These are the commands:

mkdir autorun.inf (this creates an autorun folder)
cd autorun.inf (opens the folder)
mkdir .\con\ (this creates an undeletable folder inside the autorun folder)

This will prevent any autorun files being put on those drives.

The folder "Con" cannot be created in Windows (OK in Command Prompt or Linux).
It can only be deleted from a flash drive using Linux or by formatting the flash drive.

Check it by trying to delete folder autorun.inf (if it deletes you have not got the commands exactly right).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Great tip Derek.
Another way to avoid disturbing autorun is to use run command to open thumb & external drives.
