I have been copying data from old IDE drives across to my new PC using an IDE - USB caddy. However, each time I connect a drive it creates a new drive letter in My Computer so I now have drive F: G: H: I: J: which do not exist and are not connected... How can I get rid of these drive letter associations? CHeers,

You could try this... Control Panel Administrative Tools Computer Management Disk Management Right click on the Drive letter/s Click Change Letter In the Menu one of your options should be to Remove.

Right click on the Drive letter/s

Click Change Letter

In the Menu one of your options should be to Remove.

But as Woodchip says, make sure you do not have a Cards Reader installed. You do not want to remove its drive letters
