Win7 won't see usb build disc.
I have a couple of netac bootable usb sticks that i use for RM build disks.
Just installed win7 on my main machine this week and wanted to tinker with the contents of the build disks(as i do all the time on XP), plug it in and explorer shows nothing, plus i get no acknowledgement sounds.
please tell me this isn't a feature that i can't circumvent! will make life awkward.
If i set the sticks to normal they come up as memory sticks, but when set to floppy, i get nothing.

download the tool for ms for creating boot usb devices (be warned it can be fussy abiount usb sticks one ive got will let me go so far into install but wont let me create a boot partition and install on the hdd)
if you want to edit it you need to use imagex/dism and mount a copy of install.wim from your usb drive (or preferably a copy on a hdd) make changes then update the wim file and copy back to usb. (dism/imagex are part of waik (windows automated install kit) and there is plenty of documentation online better then any i can give

problem is that i need to be able to create these build disks using rm systems as normal and occasionally tweak them.
I can edit them on other machines (XP) but as i sit at my machine most of the time that's where i want to be able to do it.

Figured it out. It was showing correctly in device manager, so i went back to explorer and manually typed b:\ into the address bar and hey presto, floppy drive!
