    Allocating CD to specific drive letter (5.1)

    I am still sorting out niggles in XP Pro. Some niggles more niggley than others!

    In Win98 I could allocate my CD drives to drives Y & Z. This escapes me in XP. Any clues from anyone?

    They seem to stick themselves so hard to their own choice of drive letters that even after creating extra partitions they do not get shunted along so I now have two hard drive letters after my CDs. I have tried deleting under System but that does not seem to work & the Win98 controls for allocating letters do not seem to be there.

    Thanks

    John

    Start | Control Panel | Performance and Maintenance | Administrative Tools | Computer Management.
    On the left pane, highlight Disk Management under Storage. Then on lower right pane right-click your CD drive on the left (when the text is "CDRom 0, CDRom(E: ), Online" or similar) and from pop-up menu choose "Change driver letter or path".
    It's that simple (after you completed MSCE exams) <img src=/S/brainwash.gif border=0 alt=brainwash width=15 height=15>

    Brilliant!!

    I would hate to guess when I would have stumbled over that without your help!

    Changing shared drive names was simple compared with that once I thought to remove sharing and then allow it again!

    Thanks again
