USB memory sticks and Windows XP
Posted on 2004-09-28
Since upgrading our student computer labs to Windows XP, USB memory sticks aren't working. For some reason unknown to me, Windows XP tries to assign the drive letter F: to the USB memory stick. We never had the problem with Windows 2000.
The student accounts are restricted, so they can not be given rights to set the drive letter themselves in the drive manager, so, is there a way that you guys know of that I can force Windows XP to automatically set USB flash sticks to, say, drive e:?
Any help would be appreciated.
