Mapped drive letters get re used when plugging in USB Thumb Drive

Posted: 06-16-2006, 10:29 PM
Assume PC layout as follows:

C: Hard Drive
D: CDROM
E: not used
F: Mapped to a network share

Plug in a USB device with 2 partitions, one CDROM with autorun files. 2nd
partition is R/W with application.

The 2nd Partition on the USB device will use the same F: drive as the
network share.

This was to be fixed in Vista, same bug appears in Win2K and XP SP2

Hmm... just change the mapped network drive to something else?
