Havent tried, but i can. What I dont understand is why it shows up in INTERNET explorer and not windows explorer. Are they not the same shells? I also get this problem when I go into disk manager where it comes up fine the 1st time, but if i disconnect the flash drive and plug it back in, it doesnt seem to want to go into disk management. I seem to have a similar problem with diskpart as well. It went in when I had already assigned a drive letter once, but when I disconnected and reconnected, it doesnt do anything anymore. Diskpart just closes after about 30 seconds or just stays at the "On computer: XXXX" line, while Disk management sometimes freezes at the "Connecting to logical device manager service" status.
