I recently bought some EMTEC flash drives.  Before loading any files to them, every flash drive I've ever had before has been blank with nothing listed, but on these I see that there are some listed items:


autorun (Setup Information)



pmp_usb (Configuration settings)


Are these on all flash drives, unlisted?  Should they be left on, or can they be deleted?

Hello there, 


When a CD/DVD disc is inserted or a USB drive is connected to your system, Windows looks in the root directory of the new disc or drive for a file named autorun. If found, Windows executes the instructions (keys) in that file. 


There is no harm in leaving these files in your Flash Drive. 



Hope this helps!
