Hi there.
I don't think any instalation is needed for scandisk thumb drive. If you have a big fast machine and more than likely it is already for you to use.
Goto windows explore and check to see if you have any new extre drive there that will be it. I have never seen a newer machine running XP not take in a thumb drive except the drive is dead.
Good luck.

Make sure that is the right drive for that thumb drive. If it is then try the drive on other machine see if it work. I did see scandisk die few time, one die on its own and the rest because of the owner try to format them. your case sound a bit farmiliar.
