  1. hi all

    i need some advice please, i would like to map 2x network drives to some of the computers in the office. i want to name them J: & I: (for cad reasons)

    this is all fine on all of the workstations except 1 laptop, it has a multi-card reader in the side that even when inactive occupies 4x drive letters including I:

    i have searched a few forums but could not find the answers i was looking for, i have tried device manager to rename etc.

    Can anyone shed some light onto this matter for me?

    Regards,

    Mark

    Look at the list of disks in the bottom view. Does the multi-slot reader appear? (Each slot would be listed as a Disk with tyoe Each card slot would appear as a Disk and Type= Removable
