    Start -> Run -> type compmgmt.msc -> OK

    which starts the Computer Management program

    in that program, go to Storage -> Disk Management

    then it will display all of the partitions/drives, and you can right-click on a partition/drive and choose "Change Drive Letter And Paths"

    it works for every drive/partition EXCEPT for the one that Windows is installed on. i.e. it can be used to change the letters of your CD/DVD-Roms, floppy/ZIP drive, extra hard drives, but (assuming Windows is installed on C not the C: drive.

    the original post wasn&#39;t 100% clear to me, whether he wanted to change his Windows drive&#39;s letter. if that&#39;s the case, i think he&#39;s prolly just stuck with the way it is. i guess it&#39;s sort of annoying to have the Windows drive labelled as something other than C:, but as far as i know there&#39;s nothing really wrong with that-- Windows 2000/XP shouldn&#39;t really care either way, which letter is assigned to the Windows drive.

    Yea it works. However, if you change a HDD letter, you will probably have to reboot for it to take effect. If you change a CD-ROM (or DVD-ROM), it&#39;ll change right away.

    This is due to the fact that the HDD are being used at the moment (by the running processes) and they cannot be cut off.
