  1. Hello. I can't get a junk drive to register as E:\ on a Lenovo T61p laptop. It recognizes that new hardware has been added, but will never appear as a drive. Is there something turned on somewhere that I need to turn off?

    Thanks for any help provided.

    Use Windows Disk Management.

    Start->Run, enter: diskmgmt.msc
    Find your device
    Rt click the device, select Change Drive Letter and pick a new one

    btw.. if you use Vista, may have to tweak Start->Run. If you don't see Run in Vista

    enter cmd in Instant Search search box after clicking Start
    You see it get listed above under Programs
    Rt click Run as Adminstrator
    then is the same
