XP : Find that missing USB drive

I have a USB drive that simply will not load on one of my PC's.

The PC simply wouldn't recognise the drive no matter what I did.

So Mr. Google to the rescue.

I found the answer here.

The problem was "More than likely the cause is that Windows renamed the drive to a letter that is already in use. This will happen if you have several card readers, thumb drives or external hard drives attached. It will also happen if you are on a network and have mapped drives".

After following the advice, all was well.
