My USB flash drive not showing in windows explorer now

I dont know why, the usb flash drive is no longer showing in Windows as another device like it used to be. It is shown in the Device Manager and is also recognized by Windows if I plug it in, but I am not able to see it to get to the files. The autorun is also not enabled, so how should I enable it? Thanks

Have you tried to explore it through admin tools and then computer management.

It might be possible that the flash drive letter has to be told to not show up in Explorer. You can try to locate and install the TweakUI from the Powertoys for XP. After that you should be able to tell your XP which drive letters to display in Explorer.

I have ended up assigning a new drive letter and everything seems to be working fine now. Thanks.
