I've just added a second hard drive to my computer which already has one hard drive (C:), a DVD-rom drive (D:) and a CD-R/RW drive (E:). The new drive came in as drive F:. Is there an easy way to make the second hard drive my D: and bump the DVD-ROM and CD-R/RW drives down to E: & F:? I've looked at the various threads here on changing drive designations but they seem to only refer to hard drives, not reassigning the DVD and CD-R drives. Any ideas?

Right click on My Computer \ Manage \ Disk Management. Right click on the drive you want to change and select Change drive letter and path. Make sure no other drive has the letter you want to use. If so, change that drive to another letter prior to changing the one desired.

Note: You can not change the Boot drive letter!

OK, now I see where I went wrong. I opened up disk manager in minimized mode and didn't notice the scroll bar on the side so I didn't see the disk drives listed. Thanks, now I've got the drives in the order I prefer. :)
