    start > run > diskmgmt.msc

    Right click on the drive and select Change Drive Letters and Paths.

    Will that affect any programs installed on that drive letter for their registry entries?

    Dont know, I have never tried, but since it is his cd-rom, I dont think it will make a difference.

    Hmmm, guess I didn't deduce that out of his post.......

    In any event, if he has programs that run from the cd, it would be logged into registry, correct? Or even installed from that drive.
