Unfortunately I can't really tell you the name of such USB drives, but
I know for sure that there are some because one year ago I had one of
them. I brought it back to the shop and they refunded me the money, so
I later bought a Jetflash USB drive. This one is compatible now  with
MacOS/Linux/Windows (I tried all three OS and it works perfectly).


P.S. the Euro-Zone (Austria) :-)
