Problem with USB flash memory stick, help!

  1. I have a 64mb USB flash memory stick. When I plug into my computer at work (win2000 pro), the system detects it and a little icon shows up at the lower right corner of the task bar. However, the drive itself does not show up in MyComputers, and I can't find it anywhere. So even though everything is ok, I cannot access the memory stick, can somebody help me with that?

    Thanks in advance.

    At work? Do you have any network drives mapped? Windows doesn't take network drives into account when mapping normal drives to letters. Go to Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management and manually assign an unused drive letter to your flash disk.
