My devices work just fine without them being in the removable storage list.
Sorry, I can't guess why here, but try this common fix -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
I'm running Windows XP Professional, which I just installed in December.
My problem is, none of my removable devices are working. Only my floppy and 2 CD drives are listed under 'removable storage' in My Computer, but they are all listed in device manager. I tried a system restore, but since I cannot go back to December, November, etc. And all the other dates will not fix this. I tried to uninstall all the drivers and reinstall them but this has not solved it either. I'm really stumped on this one. Thanks.
I should mention my iPod (touch) is being reconized in iTunes but not under the removable storage list.
