How do you get a USB 2 drive with Autorun to work?

I was lucky enough to get a 1Gb USB 2.0 drive for Christmas. It was supplied by click here a Korean company so their website is indecipherable and the Google translation is hopeless! The drive has a security feature: it is configured as 2 drives - say E and F. Drive E contains a password facility and once you have set up the password it allows you to access the F drive. This ensures your data remains safe if you lose the USB drive. However, the USB drive has an Autorun facility which my PC does not seem to recognise. When I insert the USB drive nothing appears to happen. The Device Manager recognises the drive as an Autorun device and if I click on the "Safely remove hardware" icon in the system tray it is recognised as Drives E and F. However, I am unable to access either the E or F drive and it is not recognised by Windows Explorerm or accessible via "My Computer". I am running Windows XP Home Edition SP2. Can anyone help, please?

Thanks for the swift response. Unfortunately this doesn't work as the E and F drives don't register on 'My Computer'. This is part of the problem.
