i have reciently partitioned an existing hard drive thus making new drive letters. however they are now all over the place. i now have 3 hard drives + cd writer + dvd rom + smart card reader which reads as a hard drive. i want to make my hard drives read c, d, e respectivly dvd f, cd writer g + removable disk h. can change the drive letters of hard drives with partition magic but it wont let me change the cd / dvd / removable disk. please help peeps.

I take it you are using 98?
control panel, system, device manager.
highlight each device in turn (dvd etc) and go into the properties. Now you can assign the drive letters.
after changing them you'll need to reboot.

Or in XP:
Control Panel >> Admin Tools >> Computer Management (Local) >> Storage >>Disk Management

Right-click a partition or drive and then choose >> Change Drive Letter and Paths.
