USB Flash Drives Not Showing in "My Computer"
by library_tech - 9/23/09 6:32 AM
System: Dell Pentium 4 - Windows XP Pro SP3 - on a domain
Problem: I work for a public library. We have several (not all of them) of our Public Access Computers (PAC) that when a patron plugs their flash drive into the USB ports, the computer recognizes it, assigns it a drive letter that does not conflict with any other drive letters and still does not show the drive in "My Computer".
Solutions I have tried that did not work:
1. Drive letter conflict due to network drive mappings.
Result: I have eliminated all partitions and network drives. The computers simply have a C: drive and the dvd/cd drive in D:. PROBLEM PERSISTS.
2. Removing Daemon Tools, including SPTD.
Result: The drivers and program were not found on the computers. I installed them simply to be able to uninstall them. After uninstall, PROBLEM PERSISTS!
Any help on this would be much appreciated.
