Are you stopping the device on your friend's computer or are you just pulling it out of the USB Port? If the latter, that is bad practice and leads to situations like this. You must stop USB storage devices (such as MP3 players, external hard drives, etc) before you remove them. An icon on the taskbar by the clock which looks like a green arrow pointing left over a grey rectangle is what you need to left-click on, then select your drive, then click Stop. You'll see a message that says its safe to remove.
