Force Windows to assign a drive letter to a portable device
This is driving me mad, particularly because it seems to be one of those instances where the computer is trying to be helpful and just being a PITA instead.
My daughter managed to lose a bunch of voice recordings off her MP3 player. I want to run some file recovery software against it, but Windows (XP and 7) just call it by its device name - i.e. Computer\Samsung YP-U3\Samsung Flash Media - instead of giving it a drive letter.
I've tried forcing Device Manager to use USBSTOR.SYS but it's not having it, and there's nothing in the menu of the MP3 player, tiny feeble thing that it is.
Anyone know a way of forcing Windows to stop being "helpful" or any recovery software that will work with MTP mode?
