When I hook up my digital camera, it has always shown as "removable storage"
drive "F". Now, I am not able to access drive F. Additionally, when I try
to add another hard drive, it goes to "F" and I am not able to access it...

Try plugging the camera in, press start > click run > type compmgmt.msc >
hit enter > click on disk management. If the drive is listed then right
click on it and select change drive letter and paths and assign it a letter.

Well, that was pretty helpful, but I still have a problem, and I think that
may have more to do with the camera... I need to try this with the hard
drive next, but I dont have time today.
