    I use Syncback to backup my folders. The problem I have is that the drive letter for my CDROM drive changes randomly. For example, I set SycnBack to backup a folder from my hard drive (C:) to mty CD ROM drive (E:) only to find that the next time I do a backup the CDROM drive has become E: and the backup doesn't proceed. Is it possible to fix the drive letter of the CDROM drive?

    I'd guess you are using an external drive for back up, has that drive got the same drive letter that you are using for the CD ROM?

    If so, use Disk Management to change the drive letter of the CD ROM to something higher in the alphabet.

    I'm not using an external drive, I copy from my internal hard drive to my internal CDROM. Sometimes the latter appears as E: and sometimes as D:

    When E: appears, is there also a D:? Look in Disk Management.
