RE: trying again - jbr 20 only halfway recognized?!

This sometimes happens to me, both with my Archos and a ThumbDrive - Even if
you find the drive and open it, you are limited to 8.3 filenames!

I have always found a reboot, whilst leaving the drive connected fixes the
problem. In addition, I only generally see this occur if I have been using
"Standby". If I shutdown and power off the PC when not in use, I don't
think this fault occurs...

|hi all -
|I posted back in january and got some helpful tips, but none
|that solved my problem. so I am posting again...
|compaq evo running xp pro (SP2); new in jan. jbr20 running rb
|2.4. ran fine on old windows me desktop, plug and play on work
|laptop running xp home - popped right up in my My Computer,
|drag and drop fine, the works. plugged into new system, beeped
|to signal new hardware, up pops the remove hardware safely
|icon showing that it has been assigned drive letter E.
|but - nothing in My Computer or Explorer. therefore doesn't
|register in winamp or media player. DOES show up as drive E in
|disk management, a few layers down in my computer, whence I
|can open and explore, plus copy files to and from - as long as
|I leave the window open. as soon as its closed, windows
|"forgets" it's there.
|so - my question is, if the computer knows enough to give it a
|drive letter, why can't it get smart enough to put it in the
|right place?
|addt'l info - the driver is a 5/2001 era microsoft, even
|though I have downloaded and run the archos self-installer a
|few times (rebooting religiously after each attempt)
|Do you Yahoo!?
