    Where can you change the drive letters for your CD/DVD players in Windows XP?

    In WinME you used to do it from system manager, but they seemed to have taken it out :(

    Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Storage - Disk Management.

    In the lower window, right click on the drive and choose "Change letter and paths"
    You can select it in the upper window only if it has media in it, otherwise its not there
