I got a very strange problem with my Windows Explorer: My external devices (I have one USB-Stick and a Camera) are not to be seen in the MS Explorer when I plug them in the USB-slot of my computer.
I checked the device manager, the Stick and the Camera are visible in there, report no error and all drivers are properly installed. The only thing is, I cannot access the data, because they just do not show up in the explorer as new drives, which they normally did as soon as I plugged them in.
I suspect that this error could have something to do with the fact that I deinstalled Daemontools lately, because since then the error occured. I know that daemontools creates a virtual drive and that this could be the reason why my changeable drives are corrupted. I should mention that I was not able to remove Daemontools in a "clean" way, because the program did not work right since I installed the XP Service Pack 2, and it would not allow me to access the deinstallation-tool it came with. I therefore had to remove the program by "brute force" and deleted the files. I suspect that now the virtual drive is still active somewhere and is blocking the external drives to be shown.
I would really appreciate a helping hand here! Thanks in advance!
