  1. Hi
    recently i put in a new DVD rewriter in my pc wich changed the driver location of my removable hard drive :eek: . It has 1900 artist on there wich are all in itunes and i dont want to change the locatinn of the songs and so is there any way of changing the location of the hard drive from :F to :G. Some one said there was a way of doing it from the administarative tools in control pannel. Please say if you know a way of changing it. My career depends on you!!!!!!.:(

    The easiest way is to right click on your "my computer", select manage, then storage, then disk management. Then just right click and select Change Drive Letter and Paths.

    What i tend to do is set say my cd burner to z then arrange the hard drives as i want, then change the burner from z to the lowest available letter - as an example.
