    Does it have a drive letter assigned to it in Disk Management?

    It could be that they actually have the drive letters defined on the drives themselves and that the server has more drives including one with a letter that overlapps the defined one. If this is the case USB fixed drive E and server already has a drive E then it will not mount the drive.

    Go into drive manager, right click and assign the USB key a different unused drive letter. It should then mount in explorer and be fine.
