USB Drives Have No Drive Letter In Explorer? Fix It Easily

You insert an USB drive and it is detected, but then you see there is no drive letter assigned to the drive. In other words, you cannot see the drive in your Windows Explorer and, hence, it cannot be accessed. To fix it without downloading any software is to use the Windows built-in tool called Disk Management. To access this tool right-click My Computer -> Manage -> Disk management.

If you aren't familiar with this tool, you can read this post: How to Change Windows XP Drive Letter. It should be very easy to do it as it is just a matter of a few clicks.

Alternatively, you can download USBDLM (USB Drive Letter Manager). This free program can do more than just fixing the letter. It works with Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and Vista.
