    What are you plugging in?

I will make a couple of assumptions here: I will assume you are plugging in a hard-drive (usb or Internal) or another form of media storage.

Click Start -> Run -> Type (without quotes) "diskmgmt.msc"

This will load the windows disk management software. You will see a list of hard drives with their associated paritions. If the device you have plugged in is not showing up a partition then you will need to create on by right clicking on the area that says Unallocated and choosing create partition. This will create the useable section of your device and assign a drive letter to it.

You will then need to format the partition by right clicking on it and choosing format. You should now be able to see and use your device

Why is the boot drive letter not C: after installing Windows XP on a blank...


The Windows setup process did not assign drive letter C: to the hard drive during the Windows XP/2000/NT installation process. WHY did this happen?

During the installation of Windows XP (2000 and NT use the same process) after a BLANK hard disk drive has been installed in the system, the setup process does not AUTOMATICALLY assign drive letter C: to the HDD. This can happen because an existing hard drive partition was not detected by setup and one of the following:

1. There is a Media Card Reader in the system
2. There is a Zip Drive in the system
3. There is a USB Flash Drive connected to the system
4. There is a USB Printer connected to the system that has a media card reader
5. There is an External Hard Drive connected to the system

If, any of these devices are in the system, setup will assign drive letter C: to one of these devices and then the hard disk drive (HDD) ends up with drive letter H or such. The boot drive letter in and of itself is not a big deal. Anyone with a multi-boot system like mine at home is familiar with non-C: boot drives and they per se cause no problems (You just have to know the drive letter of your boot drive).

To prevent this from happening, boot to your Windows CD and run the setup thru the creation and formatting of the hard drive. Power the system off manually, then restart the Windows installation. The partition you created on the last install will be detected and assigned drive letter C:

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.

Computer won't recognize Canon Megapixel


More often than not it's a drive letter issue...meaning that when you plug in your camera, Windows assigns it a drive letter like "E:" but something else is already using that drive letter (like external USB drivers or card readers).

To correct this you can manually assign each device their own drive letter.

1. Insert the device (camera)
2. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on "Disk Management"
4. Right-click the item in the list that looks like your camera and then click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."
5. Click "Change".
6. Give it a drive letter that is not being used.
7. Click OK.

The device should work instantly after that.

I insert my memory card into the drive and it wont show in computer what do i do


One reason your external drive may not be showing up in explorer could be an issue with assigning the drive letter to the device. This normally happens when the device attempts to assign itself a drive letter that is already taken by another drive or a network mapping. Here is how you can quickly test if this is your issue:
WARNING: Double check the drive you are selecting before changing your drive letter. Accidently changing the drive letter of the wrong drive, such as the one holding you OS can cause your computer to stop booting.
1. With the device connected right click your “My Computer” icon.
2. From the menu select “Manage” which will load the computer management window.
3. Inside the computer management window select “Disk Management” from the left side of the screen under “Storage”.
4. After all your devices are scanned and loaded into the right side of the screen you will see the various drives and partitions connect to your computer.
5. Located the device you are having an issue with in the low section of the right screen panel and check to see if a drive letter is assigned to it. If you are unsure of what it should look like with a drive letter assigned observe your “Disk 0” device which normally is connected to the “C:” Drive letter.
6. Assuming there is no drive letter assigned to your problem drive, or the drive letter is already taken you can simply right click on the partition and select “Change Drive Letter and Paths”. The partition will be the part which lists the file system type and the size.
7. Once in the “Change Drive Letter and Paths” window click the “Add” button and then select a drive letter that is not in use and click “OK”.
8. After you have clicked OK/YES to all the dialog boxes your drive’s partition should now have a drive letter that you can access via explorer.

Cant put songs onto my daughters bratz mp3 player


Hi, 
When plugging a USB removable device/storage, you should see an icon named "Safely Remove Hardware" in the system tray (right side of the task bar, near the clock). Left click on it, and you should see a list of removable hardware.
If you can not see the device there, then there is problems with your MP3 player, perhaps the battery is too weak; if this is the case, just leave it a few minutes until the device charged and initializes and recognized by the computer.
If you can see the device, but no drive letter assigned to it, then there is problem assigning drive letter to it.
You can re-arrange the drive letter assignment by entering Computer Management console: right-click on My Computer, then click on Manage.
Choose Disk Management, and assign a drive letter to your device.

Do you have an anti virus program installed int your computer and is it updated? then run a complete system scan. The problem occurs when some script or virus is active and running in the device which you are trying to stop. generally, completely scanning the system and removing any threats present solves the problem. Sure did worked for me. Give it a try
