There is a ZoomFloppy mailing list at google groups for these kinds of questions. You may get a more prompt reply there in the future.

The ZF doesn't use a drive letter. It's not a mass storage device. It sounds like you have some kind of third-party software installed for your flash drive ("LaunchU3"). It is possible this driver doesn't understand the ZF (a USB device with two bulk pipes but it is vendor-specific, NOT mass storage) but it is still trying to claim it.

I'd try uninstalling the LaunchU3 program and see if that helps. You don't need a special driver for USB flash drives. They've been supported natively in Windows since Win2k.
