Flash drive don't open on explorer

Dear,
I followed your instructions, but although I assigned a letter for the volume (there was no letter), the pen drive is not mapped in explorer. I can open it's content by the disk manager.
Can you help me? Thanks

I solved the problem renaming C\windows\system32\sptd.sys to sptdxxx.sys.
I got the solution in the site http://www.everythingusb.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=9488.
They explain:
"If you have ever loaded Daemon Tools (it appears the newer versions are the problem) and your USB Mass Storage Drives will not show up in Explorer then your problem is a file called sptd.sys. It resides in either "system32" or "system32\drivers". You can simply rename it or delete it. Restart and Wahlah!!
Note: Alcohol 120% and some other apps load these tools to run. If you delete or rename this file Dameon Tools will not function properly, thereby whatever app may be using DT. In Dameon Tools you can repair this file... but then you will be back in this boat again!"

I thank for the help,and hope I am helping somebody else, too.

Try inserting it in a usb. You will usually hear 2 beeps once its detected. Go to my computer and look for it there. If you don't see it wait about 30 seconds & see if it pops in. If not try moving it in and out slowly and carefully hopefully until you hear or see it's detected. You may have to close my computer and reopen it to refresh it. If you do see it in my computer but won't open by clicking on it, right click and click open or explore.
Another way that it may show up is to open my computer, right click "C" and click explore. You'll notice on the right side a column "folders". It may show up there under the name of your device or go down to control panel click the plus sign, if you don't see it click on portable media devices. Just look through the left column throughly for it. Mine shows always at the bottom.

How do I save to a new USB flash drive


Open Widows Explorer.
Click on My Computer.
All the drives are now listed.
The drive letter for your USB drive should be obvious but if not try removing drive and observe changes to drive descriptions.
Having located drive you can right click on it if you like and create folders within it.
Now when you 'save as' you can specify this particular drive letter and choose any folder within. Alternatively you can simply drag and drop from any other drive.

Pen drive not showing in my explorer.


Its a common problem with the pendrive, in windows. some time it doesnot detect or not showing clearly that device. you have to check your pendrive manufacturer and driver details. and also check it out driver signing.

Do you have mapped network drives on your computer? If you have this may cause your problem. When you insert the PEN Drive into USB and the "safely remove hardware" icon appers try to right-click on it and choose "eject" or "remove" (don't remember :), then pull the PEN DRIVE from the USB and connect it again. Go to Windows Explorer and try to open all your mapped drives, then the content of your PEN DRIVE must be loaded into your Windows Explorer. This is happened sometimes, because PEN DRIVE try to assign the first free drive letter after your phisical drive letters, and if you have a mapped drive letter, the PEN DRIVE assign one of them.
