    I have been having issues with mapped network drives and ipods assigning drive letters that take over the mapped drive letters. I have solved those issues, but now my F: drive is mapped to what I think is a partition (it wasn't there before, at least not with a drive letter) and I can't un-map it or change the drive letter. I've tried changing the drive letter with the Disk Management tool, but when I right click on the drive, the only option I get is "Help" (it's listed as "LOCAL DISC" in all caps). I'm going to attach a screen shot of the folder. Maybe someone can help me to un-map or un-partition it, or at least change the drive letter. I'm on a Dell Dimension with XP Pro. Service Pack 2.

    It looks like Disk 1 has no drive letter assigned.

    Right click on the drive and assign a drive letter in Disk Management.
