Subject: archos not recognized (XP Pro, SP2)

archos not recognized (XP Pro, SP2)

Once your drive is recognized it should have a letter -- maybe that
letter is used to map another network drive or something -- I am not
seeing that problem here with roughly the same setup. Make sure that
you have a free drive letter after your CD drives and I think
somewhere on that computer management screen if you right click the
drive there is a way to map it to a letter.
