Hello all....Help ...I can't seem to access my USB flash drive on my computer (XP professional operating system) once I insert it into the usb port...my computer acknowledges that there is a mass media device however when I go to My computer to access it there is no Letter associated with it..all my network drives and device drives are listed but no letter associated with my USB flash drive...How do I assign a letter to it so I can access it?

Thanks

Does it show the device is working properly in device manager? You can either do as lawson_jl said or double click it in Device Manager and make sure it says USE THIS DEVICE (enabled) where it say Device Usage:
