Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 Notebook ?

When A USB thumbdrive is plugged in, it is reconized but then it doesn't show a drive letter in "my computert" in order to transfer to or from the drive. The safe eject tab is present and does give a drive letter there but not where I need it.


Answers :

You should try manually assigning a drive letter in the computer management section.
\015\012
\015\012At the desktop:
\015\012Click Start
\015\012Right Click on "Computer"
\015\012Click "Manage"
\015\012
\015\012Windows should ask for administrator permission if youre using Vista. Just click continue.
\015\012
\015\012A window with three panels should open. On the far left panel, click the "Disk Management" option. This might take a few seconds to load.
\015\012
\015\012In the middle pane you should see a list of all the drives on top, and a more detailed one underneath with what looks like bar graphs to show the size of your hard drives.
\015\012
\015\012Look for a disk the same size as your flash drive that doesnt have a drive letter. When you find it just right click on the little box on the left middle panel
\015\012
\015\012it should say something like:
\015\012Disk #
\015\012Basic
\015\012##.## GB
\015\012Online
\015\012
\015\012And then click assign drive letter. There will be a pretty quick wizard which lets you pick what letter to give your drive, and then youre done.
\015\012
\015\012Oh, never, ever change the drive letter of the "C" drive. Your computer will not work!

Hi,

Goto Computer Management (you can type COMPMGMT.MSC in RUN box)

then goto Disk Management, point out the USB device there, right click and assign it a drive letter.

It should work.

hope it helps.

thanks.
