You must have a card reader with all of those drives listed.

Do you know how to check the device manager to see if you need to install a driver for the keychain?

It's possible that Windows is trying to assign the USB keychain a drive letter that already is already assigned to another device (common in XP).

You can fix it by going to Drive Management and simply assigning that 'unassigned' device any available letter.

I'll let somebody else walk you thru that, if that is indeed the case.

And clicking on all of those doesn't yield anything? Usually if you plug in something USB, it'll either recognize it, assign it somewhere where there may be conflict, or detects that it's a new hardware being connected. Do other USB devices work at the same port? If they don't, it's something wrong with your USB port. You can also try a friend's computer to see if it's the device or just your computer.

Got a picture of what it looks like? A brand? I know some SanDisk USB keychains have that issue (the ones with U3 software on it).
