    I have a Maxtor 3200 external drive and a Corsair Voyager flash drive. Until
    last week Vista assigned the letter G for the Voyager and F for the Maxtor.
    I had trouble accessing the Maxtor and opened up disk manager. It shows the
    Maxtor drive as healthy but there is now no drive letter. It's blank and I
    can't assign one either. I did a Google search and came up with a supposed
    solution.

    At the bottom of the article is a possible solution via the registry. So I
    deleted the F and G drive in the registry and rebooted. I plugged in the
    Voyager and Vista assigned the letter F to it. When I plugged the Maxtor in
    nothing happened. Device Manager lists the drive and everything seems normal
    other than no drive letter and I can't access the drive. Thank you
