Are both drives in the same computer or different computers?

If they are on different computers, yes, you will have to copy the devenum.dll from your WindowsXP system to the the thumb drive and then from the thumb drive to /home/benjie/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

Then start winecfg and go to the libraries tab.  click on add and then you can type in devenum.  Select native then builtin (I don't have access to my Wine system and I'm not certain there is a built-in devenum.dll file.)  Click on the OK button.  This will apply the change for all applications on the system.

>And what's a native override?

Native override is when you select 'native, built-in' in winecfg.  This tells Wine to use the Windows .dll file to resolve a function call before attempting to use Wine's internal code.  When missing code is incorporated into Wine, you can reverse this by starting winecfg and then selecting libraries, clicking on the entry for the dll name and then delete.  However, this is in the future and just for your (and others) knowledge.  Do not do this until you receive notification that the function is now working and tested.
