OK ... well ... this issue has taken a new turn. Could there be some correlation between my failing burner(s) and icon associations? As, when I plugged my burner in to try to get it to work, I lost my icons. Help? Kirk

weird....How many drives are here total?

When you install a dvd usb drive, does it try to jump ahead in the lettering scheme? Pick D instead of E or F or something like that?

I've never even heard of anything like this.

There are 3 drives total: 1 internal ATAPI cd burner (@ least 3 years old) ... 1 external USB Fantom DVD/CD burner & 1 USB TDK CD burner.

Not that I can tell. It seems to place itself at K for whatever reason. My drives are listed as:
C: Main drive w/ Windows
D: cd rom drive
E: 6 Gig storage drive
F: internal ATAPI cd burner
G, H, I & J are USB ports on a hub/card reader
K: USB DVD/CS burner
L: TDK cd burner

OT: how come there never seems to be a B: drive?

B: drive was traditionally a second floppy, and is reserved by the floppy controller

So, if you remove both external usb drives, then uninstall and reinstall winamp, all is well until you plug in the external drives (one or both)

Yes, actually, as soon as I open a program and choose the drive (to burn with), I choose whatever I'm going to burn and that's when I notice the icons have changed. Only the last time, the icons show fine in the Winamp explorer view, but not in windows explorer. Kirk
