USB HDD not recognised as HDD

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

A few weeks ago I bought an 80 G compact drive with built-in card
readers. Up until a few days ago I also used it as USB drive while
sorting out my other drives. My Computer always indicated its capacity
and available space as it does with my other USB drives but now it is
treated as if it is a disk drive, and no capacity etc is shown in My
Computer. I also used it as the scratch disk for Photo Shop Elements,
but now it is not available as a scratch disk option. I tried
uninstalling and reinstalling it but now have 2 removeable drives,
apparently both referring to the same compact drive.

What has gone wrong? I didn't intentionally change anything about its
set up.
