clearing the windows usb database

Specs: xp, 250
I red somewhere that windows keeps a hidden database file on all USB keys that had been plugged in. Does anyone know the name and location of this file ? and is it possible to reset or clear this database ?
the reason is one of my usb keys is displaying a windows message "compressed zip " , only does it on a particular pc and only this parcticular usb key.

The database only is used for trying to return the same drive letter to it.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
