Sony VRD-VC10 DVD Burner Firmware Problem

I have a Sony external DVD burner (VRD-VC10). It shows up on the system as a 710A, which I suspect it really is. I think the vrd-vc10 is just a 710A that has some ad-ons to allow it to burn DVD's in stand alone mode.

Anyway, I was having problems getting a dual layer DVD to burn on my VRD-VC10, using Cyberlink Power Director/Producer. The Cyberlink Tech support suggested updating the firmware on my DVD burner. So, I went online and downloaded and installed the firmware update for the 710A. The only problem is that when the computer rebooted as part of the install, it had changed the designation of the external DVD burner from "J" to "I". This wouldn't be so bad, but it re-designated my external hard drive that I use for video editing from "I" to "J". Now when I try to open a video project, I just get an error message telling me that the files the software is looking for on "I" don't exist. In otherwords, the video editing software doesn't know my DVD Burner and External Hard drive have traded names, it is still looking to the I drive to open the saved projects, even though the "I" drive is now the DVD Burner.

I did a system restore to get back to where I was, but does anybody know how to update the firmware on my external DVD burner without re-naming my external hard drive & DVD burner. Or in the alternative, an easy fix to allow me to tell my software that every file it was looking for on J, it shoul now look for on I.??
