Why do you need to reformat so much?

Normally, you plug in the adapter, the computer then askes you to insert the disk that has the drive.

However, it might be better to download the latest version of the drive from the manufacturer's web site.

Get a partition imager that can take a "snapshot" of your system as you want it. You can then restore your system in a few minutes when needed.

Or get DeepFreeze and fix it so they can't make any permanent changes at all.

Another thing might be to buy an external drive and configure things such that all downloaded material are stroed on the exteranl drive.
