Does it matter what drive letter is used to identify the drive? I've never paid much attention to it, but lately i've noticed a problem using my DVD\CD drive. It will play most CD's, and some DVD, but on occasion, i've had to start it from the explorer, rather than "auto-run".
Now, I can put in a DVD, and it will make the noise (searching for the file), but after a few seconds (about 15) it just stops. I can try to start it from the explorer, and it says "insert a disc in the drive" (or close to that), but dosent seem to recognize anything in there. Again, some CD's and DVD's will work. I have always wondered why that drive is listed a drive (f), and not the usual drive (d). Does it make a difference of what drive letter is used?
C: (local disk)
D: (Memeory Stick)
F: (DVD-RW Drive)
