For some reason my external LG drive letter (F)is not being recognised, I have tried resetting the USB connection and restarting but still no F drive
Thx in advance

Have you looked in Control Panel/Admin tools/computer management/disk management, is it shown there?
If not check device manager and see if there is a usb problem.

Refresh USB Ports
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.

Thx FB before I do this and being a complete novice int his area, a couple of things I switched the fw/USB cable to other USB ports with no success...should I have expected the drive to appear on ports I know are working?? and do I uninstall all USB ports/root hubs etc
