Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
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.
"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.
