Hi,

I recently attached a new dvd rom to my pc.

After it was detached, the drive letters on my extra HDD's have changed around.

Can anyone please explain to me how to change the drive letters back?

Thanks.

You can't, you can name them... but you cannot remove the drive letter and replace it with a new one sorry.

Never thought MS would have a good answer! I think that just renames it as well though, but it keeps the original in the name as well. I am not sure tell me how goes it.

Right click on My Computer . . select Manage . . select Disk Management . . Right click on the drive you want to change and select Change Drive Letter and Paths . . you may have to juggle some of the letters to get them the way you want, but you can change all except the boot drive.

For Win2K right click my computer and choose manage then Disk Management.
For XP the same or open help and search for Drive Letter. Instructions follow in detail.

If you want to change the letters assigned to your fixed or removable drives:

Right Click on My Computer

For a Fixed Disk:
Select it
Right click

Click on the Edit button
Enter in the letter you want to use

For a Removable Disk:
In the lower, right hand panel, right click on the Disk or CD ROM #
