    Hello --

    The hard drive shows as C:\ in Windows Explorer.

    The DVD drive should be D:\ (it displays as "Removable Disk (E:\)"

    When I connect a USB RAM chip, the chip displays as "Removable Disk (G:\)"

    Can anyone suggest how to correct the naming so that the DVD drive is D:\
    and additional devices connected are named in sequence?

    Thanks for any help.

    Disk Management. Rename them.

    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.
