Why not leave it as F it will not change by its self.
I wish that were so. I have a laptop with a DVD drive set as V:. Twice
now Win 2K has taken it on itself to rename this E:.
Does anybody know how I can stop it?
Downgrade to WinXP?
Seriously though, CD/DVD drives are a bit different, it not being
possible to write unique identifiers to them. Just bite your tongue and
use diskmgmt to change the letter back again.
I've never had win2k re-assign optical drive letters after my using
disk management to give the DVDROM drive the letter R and the DVRW drive
the letter W (and the same applies to the vitual cd/dvd rom drives).
It's true that win2k will remember drive letter allocations to
removable drives (even the external EXT2 formatted hard drives) but I
find this to be an asset rather than a liability.
