Renaming drives

I was wondering if there's a way to change the letter assigned to my disk drives.

I have 3 hard drives and 2 cd roms, and was wanting to give c, d, and e to my hard drives, and f & g for my cd roms. It's just the order freak within nagging at me...

Is there any way to do this? If so, is there any reason I shouldn't?

Any help would be appreciated :tazz:

Yes you go to disk management (go to control panel, click on administrative tools, then computer management). inthe light that appears, you can right click on the items on the bottom half of the page and there will be an option to change the drive letter. Though I must warn you that changing the letters for the drivers and cd-roms may and most likely will cause some of your programs to not work correctly. These programs will need to be reinstalled to work correctly again.
