Did a search but didn’t seem to find anything that addresses my issue. I have several Sandisk Ultra USB flash drives, mostly 16GB versions with a couple 32GB versions, and for some strange reason every time I insert them into a Windows computer (both Windows 7 and Windows 10) they fail to mount with a drive letter. Instead I have to go into Computer Management > Disk Management > Change Drive Letter and Paths and assign a drive letter (usually E) to the Ultra drive to have it mount in Windows every single time.
I have numerous other flash drives including several from Sandisk Cruzers that do not exhibit this problem. There is always a drive letter assigned each time they are inserted into a Windows computer.
Is there a cause for this problem?
Is there a workaround other than having to assign a drive letter every single time I insert the Ultra flash drive?
