I got my computer back from the shop a little while back, I had the old hard disk removed because it had bad sectors, in it's place, I had a brand new hard disk put in. Before I took my computer to the shop, I had the CD-RW drive named E: and the CD drive named D: Now that my computer is back, the CD drive is named E: and the CD-RW drive is named D: Can someone telll me if there is any way I can change the letters around?

You can change the drive letters by going into Computer Management and then Disk Management inside Computer Management. To get to Computer Management, go into the CONTROL PANEL and click on ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, and then click on COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, then click on DISK MANAGEMENT underneath STORAGE. Then RIGHT CLICK on the CD drive listed that you want to change and select CHANGE DRIVE LETTER AND PATH. It's pretty easy to do from here on out, but if you need more direction just post in this thread.
