"My Computer" page does not see my USB drive

See detailed query on XP os forum. The problem occurred after installing Photoshop essentials 3--When I inserted my flash memory stick xp came up with a query page asking whetherni wanted it to open with essentials 3 --I checked yes and then realized that the form box said "always". I have had all sorts of usb trouble since and wish to know if I can revoke the "always open with" designation.???

Not sure about XP

... but with 98se the 'open with' could be edited or deleted from....

Windows Explorer - View - Folder Options - File Types

Look for your Photoshop entries and see if any of them are linked to your USB. Bit strange why it picked on a Program to open it with when it should be linked to Explorer as far as I know. I can't afford to upgrade to XP so I remain in the dark about this.

tried this on xp--- the file type associations group under tools allows changes to the association , but all references to jpeg and tiff files call for the microsoft viewer not the photoshop file album. I dont get viewer and frequently dont get the usb drive inhdicator on "my computer "

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
