How does it plug in? Is it USB? If so it's likely to be Vista attempting to use it as a ReadyDrive.

I believe it's a service, check in the performance and maintenence section of the control panel.

I could be wrong. It's also supposed to ask you when you first plug it in if you want to use it a ReadyDrive, which I'll assume you said no to.
