    I have what I hope is a simple question, although beyond my limited knowledge. On my system I have 2 HDD's (one partition each), 1 CD, 1 DVD, an external HDD with 2 partitions and numerous USB ports (2 on the monitor, 2 on the front of the CPU, and at least 6 on the back of the CPU).

    In assigning drive letters using Windows XP Disk Management tool, I have come across a Disk 3 and Disk 4, both removable, and I can't identify what they are. Right now they are assigned as drives G & H and they say 'No Media' . How can I decide what they are and if I can change the drive letters without messing up my system? I have put thumb drives in some of the front USB ports, but they get assigned the next letter at the end of the available list, which currently is K.

    What I am going for is having my USB port thumb drives consistently seen as G & H.

    Does anyone have a clue what these other two drives are?

    I forgot to add that I have a 3.5" FDD assigned drive letter A:. Drive letter B is available.
