Ok, here it is.  As the network administrator, my staff is making me nuts.  Here is the problem.

In a server 2003 office with 75 Dell 3000 desktops staff is having a problem trying to use flash drives or trying to transfer pictures from thier digital cameras to the pc.  The Dell have the following local drives.  C (local drive) D (cd burner) E (cd rom)  No floppy.
Our network drives are F, H, J, P, X.   It seems like all usb devices are trying to assign themselves drive F.  Which in conflicting with the network drive F.  If I log onto the machine workstation only, things are fine because the assigned usb device uses F.
Now what is the best resolve for me without having to run around to 75 machines?  Not interested in telling staff to log onto workstaion only since most want to access the network drive.  Thanks in advance for your help.  Mike
