I recently added a second hard drive to my PC. Previously I had a single
2.5Gig drive partitioned into two drives which appeared as drives C: and D:
with my CD-ROM drive appearing as drive E:
The new hard drive is and 8.4Gig drive and in the new setup (after plenty of
hard work cloning my C: drive and repartitioning my old drive) my new
drive's partitions appear as drives C:, D:, E:, F:, G: with my original
drive now as the second drive with its two logical drives appearing as
drives H: and I:...and, you guessed it, my CD-ROM drive is now drive J:
This is a bit of a problem because I have software installed that,
unfortunately, still expects my CD-ROM drive to appear as drive E:. To save
considerable messing about re-configuring and/or potentially removing and
re-installing the guilty software products I'd like to have the CD-ROM drive
as drive E: again with the hard drives being C:, D:, F:, G:, H:, I: and J:.
I've come across various mentions of using Device Manager to reserve a drive
letter for the CD-ROM drive but when I go to the properties of my CD-ROM
driver and go to the settings tab I am only able to reserve from K: onwards,
which does not help me.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance,
