    A few days ago, I installed a game on my external hard drive. At the time, the hard drive was assigned the "F:" directory. They other day, I plugged a video camera into my computer before the external hard drive making the camera "F:" and the hard drive "G:".

    The game won't work while the hard drive is assigned to "G:". I've removed the camera, there are no other USB devices plugged in (except my mouse which doesn't have any storage capacity) but still when I plug in the hard drive, it goes back to "G:".

    I've tried plugging it into different sockets, logging off the computer, restarting the computer, but still, it goes back to "G:".

    Why is this happening and how can I get it back to "F:"?

    Thanks.
