    I everyone

    I have a device that is connected via usb. It is only a cheapo one as I am not going to use large files. However, the drive letter keeps disappearing and to get it back I have to keep switching off my pc from the wall.

    The device is not any recognised make. I have windows vista.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    I have kept a close eye on the drive. After I have switched the PC off from the wall sockets, I re-start the pc and I can access to the drive. But after a while the drive disappears....go figure!!
