USB drive not being recognized properly

Sometimes if there is a drive mapping, the device will not mount properly because the thumbdrive is trying to be connected as the same drive letter.  One way around is to go into Device Manager » Drive Management and it it’s showing there, force it to a specific drive letter that you usually don’t use.

Once or twice In the past, I’ve had to delete the regkeys associated with a usb drive in order to get them to detect again.  Here’s a little util that makes it easier than regedits…and it can be used remotely as well.
