    How to Change Disk Drive Letter Assignment? (XP SP-2)

    I have a XP computer that has 2 hard drives that was delivered as C and F

    c: (NTFS on drive 0)
    f: (NTFS on drive 1)

    It also has 2 DVD drives that was delivered as D and E

    DVD-RW Drive (D
    DVD Drive (E

    I had to reinstall Windows XP and disk drive letter assignments were changed as follows:

    c: (NTFS on drive 0)
    d: (NTFS on drive 1)
    DVD-RW Drive (E
    DVD Drive (F

    How do I change my disk drive letter assignments back to their original delivered state.

    Thanks, John

    You will need to use another drive letter temporarily

    Change from
    DVD-RW Drive (E
    DVD Drive (D

    to
    DVD-RW Drive (Z
    DVD Drive (D

    then to
    DVD-RW Drive (Z
    DVD Drive (E

    and finally to
    DVD-RW Drive (D
    DVD Drive (E
