I’m not quite sure what has changed as I am one of two AD admins. The notebook is governed by domain-wide GPOs, but I’ve looked thru all the GPOs and nothing is restricting USB access. When I plug a USB device in, for example my 8 GB USB stick, the “Safely Remove Hardware” icon in the Tray shows the device in question, alas with no assigned drive letter. This is the problem! Can anyone suggest where I can start looking for a solution? Thanks. Notebook is WindowsXP SP2. PS. There is a GPO which restricts USB access, BUT, this does not apply to my workstation.
