I have a usb key, it is working fine on my other machine. However, on this computer, when I plug it in, it recognizes it but will not load up as accessible under 'My Computer' and no autoplay stuff comes up. What gives?

Right click My Computer and click manage, open Disk Management and ensure the USB device is assigned a drive letter

Smooth! Another network drive was using the same letter. Thanks :) – Chris Nov 9 '09 at 13:39

Is it empty?

Control Panel > Folder Options > View > uncheck "Hide empty drives in the computer folder" > click OK.

Ah, seems answer has been posted since I started my post.
