    i have a usb drive connected to a remote computer and sometimes the
    drive will not show.
    the only way i can get it to show is if i disconnect and reconnect it
    manually.
    this is not always convenient.
    is there a command or script i can use to refresh the usb port and get
    the drive to show up.
    things ive tried:-
    1. refresh and rescan disks in management console.
    2. scan for hardware changes in device manager
    3. restart the system

    im running xp sp2 on 2 different computers and both have the same problem.

    i tried uninstalling each of the usb components in device manager and
    rebooting. on reboot windows reinstalled everything but still didnt
    detect the drive.
