    Running XP Home. I have an active Zip Plus drive that doesn't appear in the My Computer window. If I go to Control Panel >Manage >Computer Management >Disk Management, the drive is shown as 'Healhty (Active)'. When I R-click the drive icon and then Open in this window, the drive is activated and the disk is displayed. I can also get the drive to operate using WinKey. What would prevent it from appearing in the My Computer window. Thanks
