I have seen that happen as well..
i have all ways thought it is due to having a different filesystem...i.e windows being NTFS and linux being 1 of many like Fat32, ext4, etc etc...and it sees it as being broken or similar...

Any reason not to remove the drive before booting into XP? That's what I do but I don't have a need to frequently boot into an external drive.

MalwareMutilator, After looking at some of your posts I thought I would mention, that it is advisable to use a 32bit distro with 2gb of RAM or less, even with 64bit processor. Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong, this is just what I have learned here on B.C.com. Don't know how much it matters but thought I would mention it.
Is this your HP laptop?
Also, MM- how did you install your Mate with Unetbootin, or with a full install to usb. If you went with Unetbootin how and where are you saving files too.

Windows (XP), Windows does a Check Disk on the USB drive.
That is a Windows setting that is causing that, If I remember right, When you open disk properties, There is an option to defragment the disk and check the disk for errors, If you click the box it will tell you that check disk will be performed next start up.
