    How do I do it? I've changed the drive letters for logical drives/hard drives before using partion magic and other programs like that, but how do I change the drive letters for my DVD-R and Zip drives? I used to know how to do it in Windows 98, but I'm using XP now and I don't know how. Any help is appreciated.

    Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Storage - Disk Management (local)

    Right click on the disk drive in the lower panel, select "Change drive letter and Paths"

    The drive will probably not show in the upper panel unless there is media in it.

    Right click on "My Computer"
    Select "Manage"
    Click on "Disk Management"
    Right click on your DVD-ROM drive
    Select "Change Drive Letters and Paths"

    Do the same for your ZIP drive.
