Windows not assigning Drive letter

For some reason my system no longer automatically assign's the next available drive letter when I plug a USB device into the system, it just does not show up in Computer.  I have to go into Disk Management and manually assign it a drive letter that is not in use.  My system is Windows 7 Pro, I have tried running diskpart automount enable this did not resolve issue.

Just to confirm, you ran the the following commands in an elevated Command Prompt window?
diskpart
automount enable

Open in new window


Also try running mountvol.exe /e

That it is correct I ran Diskpart automount enable with elevated rights as well as mount.exe /e no changes.
Also I ran sfc -scannow with elevated rights no change.  The only way i can get drive to show up in computer is to assign a static letter.

Might be worth updating the drivers for your USB controller as a next step.

Okay think I  figured out what the issue was, I had a Mapped network drive that was disconnected which was assigned drive letter G, which every time I inserted a USB device it was also assigning it Drive letter G.  I disconnected that network drive inserted a USB device it was assigned next available mount point.

Thank You for the quick reply's   :)
