Hi,

I have a 1GB USB Flash Memory stick which works absolutely fine except on one particular PC. It shows up as a USB Mass Storage Device in Device Manager, the Removable Storage service is started in windows, but no drive appears for it under My Computer. Any ideas on how i can access the stick in windows?

Thanks...

In administrative tools, open Computer Management. The under Storage Disk Management asssign a drive letter to the USB drive.
Give that a try - its probably been trying to sue an existing drive letter
