I suspect this is because the USB keyring is formatted with a dos/fat
partition. When I was trying to swap Iomega zip disks between Linux,
Windows and Mac this was the easiest way to get it to work.

In theory, you should be able to do the same with the Firewire drive,
though if you don't have a copy of Windows you might have trouble
getting it formatted with a fat partition.
