    Two HDs, one via USB and the other PCMCIA connection are not
    accessible following formatting of the drives. When plugged in, they
    are not assigned a drive letter, but the computer knows they are there
    because the RW CD and USB thumb drives are assigned as G and H drives,
    with E and F drives not showing. Before formatting the drives, they
    were assigned drive letters, however after, trouble shooting indicates
    "The drive can not start (code 10)". Anyone have a way to work around
    this...? - Elliot

    Go into Computer Management.
    Change CD and USB drive letters to further down
    the Alphabet (Say M/N etc)
    Then give your drives the letters you want.

    Rt/click My Computer/Manage/Disk Management.
