I can select one but the 'always use the selected program to open this file' is greyed out and unticked so the change doesnt stick.If I navigate to notepad.exe manually it still is the same problem.A reboot doesnt fix the problem.If I try to fix in the registry it is set to notepad.HKEYCLASSESROOTinifileshellopencommandvalue notepad.exedouble clicking opens regedit.

Usb drive letter conflict (xp sp2)location: winsecrets.com - date: February 25, 2005The other day I was upgrading one of the work machines to xp. It is connected to a lan with adsl. Before I connected to the internet and network, I used my usb flask drive to load up the anti-virus program. The key installed as normal as Drive E and all went well.
I then removed the key and set up the office network and mapped some network drives, the first as E. I later found that when I connected my flash key, it said it was connected as a usb mass storage device but would not show in My Computer as a drive. It was not until I re-mapped drive E to a different letter that the flash key showed as drive E.Is there a way to make xp redesignate the flash key to a new letter?Regards.
I have a drive that has a lot of information on it that I need. A user left our company and all of his files are on this drive. I was handed it and asked to build a VM with all his information on it. When I plug the drive in it loads the drivers and showsup just fine in Computer Management (shown below), but not in Computer. So I think, ok, I'll just add a drive letter but that option is greyed out and won't let me.
The disk is initialized and appears to be healthy. I have gone to device manager and made surethere were no problems there as well. It was also an external drive so I removed it and made it an internal drive on my machine but got the same results.
It shows up in BIOS but obviously can't boot off of it since it is not an OS drive.Deleting/formatting the drive is not an option. Is there a way to get this drive accessible without that? Deleting it is the exact opposite of what I want done here.Thanks! Hi,According to your screenshot.
It seems that this disk is UEFI protected.The UEFI specification defines a new model for the interface between personal-computer operating systems and platform firmware, updating BIOS interfaces such as MBR. UEFI supports the GUID Partition Table (GPT), a more flexible partitioning scheme.Please insert that disk into a computer which supports UEFI. And then follow these steps to change a GUID partition table disk into a master boot record disk:1.Back up or move all volumes on the basic GUID partition table (GPT) disk you want to convert into a master boot record (MBR) disk.2.If the disk contains any partitions or volumes, right-click any volumes on the disk and then click Delete Volume.3.Right-click the GPT disk that you want to change into an MBR disk, and then click Convert to MBR disk.After that, insert it to your computer to check the result.Karen HuTechNet Community Support. Hi I have got exactly the same problem as described above. The disk was not formatted on a Mac but came out of a NAS drive. The drive speed up as having 4 healthy primary partitions and one 24MB unallocated partition.
The partitions were I think createdusing the NAS software. The drive is a SATA drive and I have put it in a case mount which is connected to the computer using USB.

As above I only have the option to Delete Volume which I don't want to do as I want to recover the data which is stored on thedisk. Hope you can help Rodger.
