There are two reason for ur problem
a) when windows XP fails to allocate a drive letter to your portable drive(pen drive)
b)some other technical faults in your pendrive
to solve ur problem follow these steps below
Right click on My computer icon->Select manage->Select Computer management->Select Disk Management under the storage section
-> In the right side will show you all of the current drives and partitions on your drive.
If you don’t know which is your pendrive, don’t worry, just find the drive you are looking for in the graphs at the bottom. They are usually named Disk 0, Disk 1, CD-ROM, CD-ROM1, etc.
If you’re looking for a USB flash drive, you’ll see the word “Removable” underneath Disk X -> Now right click on the icon -> Select Change drive letter and paths -> Assign a new Drive letter-> click Ok.
Now your pen drive will be detected in the computer.
there is an another way to solve ur problem
After plugging in the device. Go to device manager (In run type "devmgmt.msc") In Device manager go to "Universal serial bus controllers" It should list the storage devices that you have connected to your PC. Right click and then click "Uninstall. Remove the USB drive and restart your system.
Try connecting the device again, i think this should solve the problem.
