Problem USB Keys + Vista

I have an Integral 1GB USB Key - when I now insert it into my new Vista computer for some reason it appears as Floppy B drive (I have a normal floppy disc A drive installed)
Consequently it will not let me add any further data files - claiming it is full - which it would be if it was a floppy disc but it isn't.
Vista hasn't coped very well with other of my old Disgo key drives. Is there any way to access these key drives differently so I can regain the data they are holding.

Try reassigning a new drive letter.

Insert the drive and right click Computer and select Manage/Disk management.
Right click the drive (normally named UDISK,maybe different on your machine)
Select change drive letter and paths, follow the prompts.

This will ask you change from A:
Select something like Z so you will not become confused.

skidzy - appreciate your prompt reply. Unfortunately there is no Manage/Disk option when I right click My computer with problem Integral Memory key installed. Perhaps this would be a solution in XP. Thanks anyway

Integral has "read only" switch on side. It had been accidentaly clicked over and XP insisted it was a floppy drive!
