Why is that unfortunate?

I would expect it to have two letters drives, one for the device and and one for the optional expansion card, since that is what the instructions say. Each letter drive would have a name such as EB106. That's fine.

Are you saying it doesn't show up in XP the way your's does in Windows 7, all else being the same? If so, I would suspect a hardware problem with the device, the cable, or (seems least likely to me) the netbook usb port.

Googling the EB106, I am finding it available at selected US WalMart locations for $24.88. This price would, for me, make up for a lot. A fair number of buyers, elsewhere on the internet, say they are returning it to WalMart, but it sounds like this is mostly because of not figuring out how to get it working, rather than bad hardware.

Most low-end tablets have bad touch screens. This one doesn't have any touchscreen, perhaps a better idea.
