Between sometime in December, and a few weeks ago, my computer stopped assigning drive letter to my CF card reader. I thought it was maybe the reader, so I bought a new one. Still no luck. Windows ME recognizes it, installs it, but it just won't assign it a drive letter...WTF?
I did try the on-board USB ports on the back of the PC, as well as the ports that I installed on the front. Same deal.
My joysticks still get recognized in all ports, and work with no problems. My external CD burner, gets recognized and gets a drive letter. So I'm not sure what's going on.
The only other thing I can possibly think to point a finger at is the Generic USB Storage Device driver...
Anybody seen/heard of this before? Any ideas to try?
EDIT: I answered my own question I guess. I deleted the USB Mass Storage Device Manager from Device Manager, and re-booted. And that's got it for now. (any Admin - feel free to boot this thread if you like...or leave it if you think it might help someone else.)
My mother got the Blue Screen of Death to END all Blue Screens of Death today-- it said there was a problem with the computer and it required her-- required her-- to reformat. It kept shutting off and turning back on, etc... so she reformatted.
