Def odd. LaunchU3.exe is the files that gives you the U3 Task bar. The Flash
drive normally takes two drive letters, one being a CD-ROM drive. But no
matter what drive letters I give it, it seems the ZF has already taken them.
Like the ZF takes ALL the available drive letters when connected. 

I'll see if anyone on the ZF google group has had this problem. 

Thanks to the quick response.
