Don’t worry about the scsci bit, it’s not actually a scsi drive, it’s a USB drive, but different USB controllers seem to present drives in different ways. I’ve heard of this happening more on USB 3 ports, plug it into a USB 2 port and it’ll probably show differently.

NTFS that will probably be the show stopper and formatting it as FAT32 should sort that, but you’ll need to use a third party app to do it. I use Rufus.

EDIT – there is a reason why you have you use an SSD or spinner, they can accept video streams natively which “thumb drives” cannot as they lack the instruction set.
