Default Removable Storage problem 2000 Server

Windows 2000 server.

its been running find backing up to a USB drive with no problems......i go to check today and the drive has vanished, i check disk management, the drive still shows up fine.

i plug a USB memory stick in....same thing, nothing in my computer...can't access thru console, but everything is showing up in disk managment just normal.

Try to explore from disk managment " The system cannot find the device specified"

when you see the USB pen drive in the disk management console does it have a drive letter?


only disks with assigned drive letters show up in the my computer window.

Go into IE and manually type the drive letter in to try to access it

i've already done that from the console as stated before, lets just skip past the basics please I've been digging at this for a few hours and even deleted the Removable storage database just for sh*ts.

if you can see the drive in the disk management can you right click on it and press open?
