Hmmm… got a problem with a Kingston DataTraveller 256 MB USB 2.0 stick. If I plug it in, the little light comes on and it gets accepted by the computer; but it doesn’t appear in any file manager as a separate drive letter.
Looking in XP’s Administrative Tools, it is seen and named correctly in Device Manager -> Disk drives (see pics below). If I want to unplug, it has been allocated a drive letter D: according to the ‘Safely Remove Hardware’ dialogue but again this does not appear in any file manager.
Several disk recovery utilities do not recognise a drive D, and uninstalling and reinstalling the USB controllers doesn’t change things.
I’m presuming that all is lost, but in case there’s a solution I wonder if anyone has any other ideas…?
DOS doesn’t recognise it either
