No Drive Letter for USB memory sticks in Windows Explorer
I've got 3 USB memory sticks (Verbatim 1Gb, Mp3 Player 512Mb and a sandisk 256Mb).
I've got an Asus P5WD2 Del board with eight USB ports. The OS is XPPro SP2.
When I plug in the sticks, windows recognizes them (checked that in device manager), but in windows explorer I don't get the drive letter. I've tried to go into disk management (my computer, manage, storage, Disk Management. There I can assign a drive letter. However when opening windows explorer is does not show up the corresponding drive letter!
The weird thing is that if I open a command console I can access the drive!
Start|Run|cmd| <drive letter>:
This happens to all the sticks, I've tried them on other computers and they work fine.
How can I get the drive letter working on Windows Explorer?
