    I know this is a novice question but because I haven't done it in so long, I can't remember how.
    How do I change the drive letters in Windows XP?
    When I stepped up to the new OS, it recognized all my drives except my Zip so I had to reinstall it. Now, instead of my Zip being E, DVD being F, and Burner being G; my DVD is E, Burner is F, and Zip is G.
    I know it seems petty, but all these drives are physically labled on my case with the original preffered setup.

    Change the labels on your case...LOL
    Go into device manager and change them from there. Does XP have a disk administrator like NT and 2000?

    This was a reply I got from another group, and it worked fine...

    "What you need to do so go to Start and right-click My Computer. Choose Manage and then Disk Management. You can change your drive letters there."
