Windows XP - (Re)Assigning drive letters in ....

I know its not a solution, but the drive letters depend on which order the drives are connected. So, the first drive to connect would be your physical drives inside the computer (C: and D: etc etc), then physical cd/dvd drives, then anything you plug in after that.

I have an external drive, in internal drive and DVDRW. It maps them E: C: and D:, then my daemon tools drive F: If i was to plug in my usb, it would become G: and if i plug my phone in, as mark said, it takes another drive, it would become H:

A drive and B drive are reserved for floppy drives.

If the drives are always connected to your computer, you should be able to assign them letters through the management console (as mark said) and they will always stay the same. I noticed once that when i plugged in my usb drive, it would take a drive letter that wasn't in order (so it would take G: insted of F: because it had been hooked up as G: before that) I'm not sure what was happening, but it kept the same drive letter always.

It is as simple as this (As long as it is Windows XP):

  1. Click on the Windows Start Button.
  2. Click on Control Panel
  3. Click on Performance and maintinance
  4. Click on Administrative Tools
  5. Double Click on Click on Computer Managment
  6. Click on Disk Managment
  7. At the Bottom of that screen, right click on the drive that you want to assign a letter to, and select Change Drive Letter and Paths..
  8. Click on the Drive that you are assigning in the pop up dialog.
  9. Click Change
  10. In The drop down box that is shown, select the letter that you would like assigned, then Finaly,
  11. Click on okay.

You have just reassigned the drive letter for that drive..
