Hi All,
  I came across a strange thing with one of my USB sticks.  It was one
given to me so its not like I was expecting one thing and got another.

When I plug it into my computer, I get two drives (not partitions, but
sdc and sdd) with different USB IDs appearing.

Anyone seen this before? I've not heard of it.  Not even sure why you'd 
bother given the small size of them.
