    Drive Letters (XP Pro-SP1)

    I am trying use a USB Flash (Pen Drive). It was working fine until I pulled it out without using the eject function in the Sys Tray. Now the drive is recoginzed in the System Mangager Hardware under USB Devices and is "working properly" under properties. However it does not have a drive letter and does not show up in My Computer, therefore, I cannot access it. I can use the drive in other machines and I can use other devices in my USB ports, so I feel the problem is in my Windows XP assigning drive letters. I left the drive plugged in and re-booted....The drive then became Drive-F which is suppose to be my Network Drive on the server. The data on the pen drive is accesible under drive F but then I cannot access my network.
