Hi

From Start>Run type the following - you can change most drive letters in there:

diskmgmt.msc

Go to the Control Panel, and click on Administrative Tools, then on Computer
Management.

A new window will pop up and on the left you should see an option for Drive
Management, click that, right click on the drives listed and you'll have an
option to change the drive letters.

Hope that sorts it. :cool:

Control Panel - Admin Tools - Computer Management, select Disk
Management and look lower right for the graphic of the hard drive
partition, or icon for a CD drive. Right click and take Change Drive
letter. If the desired letter is in use for something else you will
have to change that first. Also you cannot change the one for the
system drive or the boot drive (if different, as in a dual boot
situation)
