Has anyone seen anything like the following?
When I plug my Memorex 1GB thumbdrive into my laptop PC running WinXP (with it's USB 1.1 port...ugh!), I see the following (which does not happen when I plug into my desktop PC running WinXP (with a USB 2.0 port/hub)):
The thumbdrive shows up without the label I gave it, just as "Removable Disk," and it is shown as being in RAW format, not FAT32. Know that it *actually works fine* here, unlike what seeing RAW here can often mean. If you call up a command prompt and look at the drive, it says it's FAT32. If you go to Disk Management under Administrative Tools/Computer Management in the Control Panel, you see the message "connecting to logical disk manager service" and when it connects, you see the USB drive label update correctly in Windows Explorer, along with the correct FAT32 identification there, plus it shows up in Disk Management correctly. I had both the logical disk manager services on manual, then switched it to automatic, but it makes no difference. It seems that these services just wont start when you plug in the USB drive, but if you call up "Disk Management" via the Control Panel, , they do start (you don't have to go to Services to start these...they just start right here).
Anyone know why this happens? Since the drive works fine (other than not showing the customized label and the correct drive format), I'm not worrying too much about it, but it is annoying :-|
