Angry Discriminating my flash drive!

Can anyone give me any possible reason why, when I mount my USB drive on mandrake 10.0, an icon Hard Disc appears on the desktop, but i cannot see any of my files??? When i remove my Flash drive and put on my dad's own, he gets to see all his files and open them. (SOO UNFAIR!) Of course he won't trade his Flash drive with could someone please give me any idea of what is going on?
