How to assign a drive letter to a Portable Device?

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XSi and I'm using Windows 7.  I'd like to have the images automatically copied to my hard drive when I connect the camera.  When I connect the camera via USB, it shows up just fine under Portable Devices.  The problem is that the filepath is Computer\Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi.  I cannot get any third-party software to recognize that as a valid filepath (because it does not begin with something like F:\), nor can I find any way of getting Windows 7 to assign a drive letter to the camera directly.

Is there a way to either assign a drive letter to the camera or get third-party software to recognize Computer\Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi as a valid filepath?
