    My work notebook all of a sudden can not see any USB modules nor my Blackberry as a USB hard drive. 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.
