USB hard drive does not display a drive letter.  It shows up within device manager but does not show in my computer or disk management.

The machine with the issue is a windows 2008 sbs server - The hard drives work fine on other computers.  If I reboot the server, the drive appears with a drive letter.  Its not convenient to keep restarting the server - 60 users connect to the server for file sharing.
