Does not show in Explorer (which is "My Computer". That's proper and supported. Research TWEAKUI HIDE DRIVE LETTERS and you'll see where Explorer does not have to show the drive.
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.
