    I am networked to another home computer that has an external WD drive connected through a router. I managed to get the sharing done so that I could see it from my computer. But just recently for no apparent reason, the drive's category has changed to MEDIA and whenever I try to open it to get to my documents, Windows Media opens instead. Granted there is alot of music on that drive, but that is not the only thing. I am not even going to try to explore why the change happened, I just need access to that drive as something other than media. What can I do to change the category of an external drive?
