Hi Jean-Pierre,

I am not sure but I think you would have to make sure that you put the USB device in the same USB port that you started with?. That said, if you plug in other USB devices, it may well overwrite the path?. Maybe other forum members have an idea for you?. :)

Sometimes it's necessary to plug a USB drive, any type, into the same USB Port used when assigning a drive letter in Disk Management. It's possible the port identification by the Operating System will be the issue.

Simple to do. Plug the USB key into any USB port, go into Disk Management and set the drive to be M:. Once done, it will always be M: in the future.
