    Choosing drive letter

    I recently installed a new CD drive and now all the drive letters are different (except for C of course). Now Im gonna have to edit all of the programs that reference files on the affected drives. Is there any way I can choose which drive letters I want for each drive?

    In Windows XP:

    1. Open the Control Panel
    2. Open Administrative tools folder
    3. Double Click Computer Management
    4. Under Storage, click Disk Management
    5. Right click where it says CD Rom, and click Change Drive Letter and Path
    6. Choose the current drive letter and click change
    7. Change the letter in the drop down box, and hit ok
    Give me a bad reputation!!!
