I have a USB pen drive that maps to the next available non-physical drive. I however have network drives mapped and so the USB pen takes over my network drive mapping. Is there a way to configure the pen drive to map to a fixed drive?

Have you tried going into Computer Management --> Disk Management and look for the device.  Once you find it, right-click on it and select "Change Drive Letter"?

I want the USB drive to be able to do this automatically. So I guess my question should've been - Are there any registry settings that I can change or hacks that will let me do this?
