When I stick in a USB drive it shows up in the taskbar as the little green arrow icon (to remove) but does not show up in "My Computer" nor is it accessible through the "run" dialog if I type: "e:".

We have disabled access to the C: drive on this computer but that shouldn't affect removable drives right?

btw: I'm sure the usb drive works, I've tried it on another computer.
