    I have changed the drive letters on my two DVD burners and they keep changing back.

    I have two SATA DVD burners lettered K and L. I have reversed the drive letters several times in Disk Management and they hold for a while; but, when I attempt to use them again a few days later, I notice the letters are swapped back.

    Anyone have suggestions on how to get this problem solved?

    What steps do you go thru to set them in Disk Manager?
    No crashes? No system state restores?

    Using the standard method--right-click the drive letter, edit, change the letter, etc., etc. I've done it for years so I know it's right.

    No crashes, no freezes, no running problems, no program crashes or hangs, no restores, using Windows 2000. It never changes while the system is running; but, I notice it after a restart. I can run for a week or ten days without a restart and it doesn't change. Then I'll do a restart and it'll change.
