    Right click, select properties. Look at the formatting (most USB drives are formatted FAT32). Look at the size. I assume the flash drive is much smaller than the other drives in terms of size. My flash drives are no larger than 64GB and my other drives start at 250GB.

    How many items are connected/mapped on the computer? Windows only displays a drive letter for each drive connected to the computer. If it's actually showing ALL of the drive letters available (ie: A - Z), you have a lot of connected drives, Windows is corrupted, or the machine has malware.
