I'm running WinXP and have recently had problems getting my 2GB memory stick to appear in My Computer. The stick is fine--works well with another computer and always used to work fine with this one. The problem seems to have surfaced since I bought a WD My Book external hard drive, which now takes up the "E" Drive designation the memory stick used to open on. When I plug in the memory stick, the chimes sound as if recognised and the LCD on the stick flashes a couple times, but there's no drive listed for it on My Computer.
The drive is displayed in Device Manager and seems to be running properly, but the only way I can access it is to create a shortcut from the device manager to my desktop. Even then, it won't perform as in the past, for example as an update drive for my Quicken financial programme. Surely there's a way to allocate the memory stick to an unused drive and access it through My Computer??
