    On my laptop I have the usual C:/ Drive, I also have Drive D:/ as the HP Recovery. Along with that, I have my Maxtor External HD, My U3 Cruzr, My WD Pocket Drive.
    This morning I added my Garmin to the mix, and here is what happened.
    The Garmin took over Drive F which was the Maxtor, and the SD Card took over Drive G. However now my Cruzr is now Drive H and the non U3 portion is now Drive K, with the Maxtor location changed to Drive I, and the Pocket Drive Changed to L.
    I know there was a way in XP to set these, the way I wanted them, but is there a way in W7 to set the order of the drives? I know it may sound trivial, but at my advanced stage of senility it helps...LOL

    You can set them with Disk Manager, the same way as in XP

    • Right click on Computer in any explorer window
    • Select Manage
    • Select Disk Management in the left Pane
    • Select the disk drive at the bottom of the right pane
    • Right click and select "Change Drive Letter or Path"

    This is all from memory, but it won't be too inaccurate.

    In W7 it is under System and Security and then Administrative Tools then Create and Format hard disk partitions.

    It is ALSO in the location I described above, which may be easier to find.

    You might like to have a look at USB Drive Letter Manager - not free, but may be worth $15 to you.
