I am using Compaq Presario SR1520NX.

My O is drive taken by Network drive whever I login and use wd2go.com and usb flash drive can't be used.

But when I disconnect from O network drive, by re-booting the p.c. and then plugin usb it shows up as O drive.

My question is can I re-assign my usb flash drive to a different letter so both
usb and network drive can be used ?

If so, what should I do ?

Thanks.

With the USB drive connected open Disk Management

Right Click on the drive and select Change Drive Letter and Paths

You should then be able to assign the drive a letter that is not in use.

The built in sd card reader on my computer is assigned drive F:
Is there a way to assign it G: , so I can assign my Flash Drive to F ?
Since I am use to F: as flash drive on my other computers I have and I also
have bat files which work using F: drive as flash drive..

If so, how do I do this ?


Thanks.

In Windows XP: Click Start > Run > type diskmgmt.msc

In Vista/Windows 7: Click Start > in the Search field type diskmgmt.msc > hit Enter

To Add to what makinu1der said, it looks like O: is the first available Local Drive letter and all the other C-N: are taken up. Card readers usually take up more then one Drive letter because there is one Drive Letter for each card slot. To make the Flash drive F: go to Start/Run and type diskmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Disk Management window, right click the volume/partition of the F: choose Change Drive Letter or Path, and choose to move it to a drive letter that is not being used, like P: Q: etc. This Free's up the F: drive letter. Now you can right click the volume/partition of the Flash Drive and choose Change Drive Letter or Path and choose F: To move the G: drive to a different drive letter, you would do the same thing. Then once it has been moved you can move the Card Reader that was previously F: to the G: drive letter etc.

Hi,

The guys are correct. In addition if the letter you want to change to (F) is in use then change that drive to another unused letter. Now change your drive to F.

Good Luck, Jim
