Re: USB Drivers in Windows XP .... Im f**ked

agree on the 'drive letter assignment'
most USB devices want to be the 'F drive'
- if you're on a networked system - it will not show if a previous volume has been allocated as F.

quickest fix I've found is:

Start> Control Panel > Administrative Tools

Select: Computer Management > Disk Management

your USB device(s) will be in the list.

RIGHT Click > select: Change Drive Letter & Paths

Change USB device to an unused drive letter.

*problem* - IF the drive is removed and system is rebooted - you must repeat the process.

**warning** make sure you are changing the USB device - or you could possibly re-assign your hard drives..etc.
