Can anyone help me in this unbelievable predicament I am in Huh?

Upon installing a new motherboard, I have linked up the relevant 2 drives I have ( D drive being a dvd rom & the E drive being a CD-RW ) but when I insert a cd into the D drive ( DVD rom ) it reads it as though its in the E drive & obviously visa versa when I put a cd into the E drive (cd-rw) Angry

I would really appreciate any idea's or views on this & many thanks for sparing any time to give me a reply

Thanks again

its a simple mixup in the labelling

heres how to fix it

Right click "My computer"

Choose "Device Manager" from the tabs

From the list that comes up, choose "Cd-Rom" which will list any cd/dvd drives currently wired up.

click the "+" to the left of "CD-ROM"

Choose the one you want to be the D drive and right click it, choose "properties"

now select "Settings"

you will see "drive letter assigned" which will show as E from what you have said, underneath it says "reserved drive letters"

choose P: from each of the drop down menus and click OK


do the procedure for the other drive (this one should be labelled P: so do the same procedure for the drive showing as D: and call it drive "E" using the procedure i explained


now finally do this for the drive showing as "P" and call it "D"

you are finished, restart and try a CD

i hope this is clear enough
