When our users are connecting a USB key with 2 drives (USB and a virtual drive or U3 USB key) then the second drive is conflicting with our network drives.

Is it a way to prevent this?
Is it a way to force all USB key to map everytime the same drive?

The user could change the letter mapped to the drive in Computer Management.

You need to be careful if you do try, some cameras and PDAs also act like removable drives so it possible that you might want to make room for more than one removable drive letter

The only thing I have found is called USB Drive Letter Manager. Its a service that runs in Windows and actively assigns the drive letter as configured in an ini file.
