Is this working for others?

C:\>ver /r

TCC  21.01.56   Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
TCC Build 56   Windows 7 Build 7601  Service Pack 1

C:\>echo %_drives
C: H: U: V: W:

C:\>echo %_usbs

C:\>echo %_usbdrives


_USBDRIVES in this case is a plugin variable.

I'm OK with a WD external hard drive. What kind of device is yours? A vaguely recall a discussion (years ago) about some USB devices not being seen as "drives".
