  1. Duplicate USB Thumb drive letters


    Greetings all,


    Can anyone tell me why I would be seeing duplicate drive letters for any USB drive i.e. thumb, ssd, etc., in the MS Explorer navigation pane.


    Also, when I click on the "Safely remove hardware" icon on the taskbar to remove the USB drive, it's always telling me

    "Problem ejecting device & The device is in use" on the first attempt to remove it.

    But on the 2nd attempt, it does allow me to remove the drive.


    Just wondering if this is by design, or have I bugged up my PC in some way …. !


    Any help is always appreciated

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.
