Hi, I recently reformatted my computer and my external hard drive was assigned a different drive letter. I've been able to solve all the problems so far except for one small one. There are a couple files that a program needs to locate in the old drive letter. Since everything else on my external hard drive is now running from the new letter, I decided to "Shrink Volume" on one of my existing drives and do "New Simple Volume" with the unallocated space and give it that drive letter. This way my program can access the files it needs from that drive letter, and everything runs smoothly again.
However, when I go to assign the letter to it, it's unavailable. It's not showing up anywhere under Disk Management. I downloaded and used TweakUI, which shows that this drive is currently a CD-ROM type drive (Although I only have one CD drive and it's being used under a different drive letter). The only way I've been able to confirm its existence is in TweakUI. But is there any way to "Unmount" or "Unattach" that drive letter from the CD drive (which is apparently hidden and not in use)?
(I attached an image of the drive (L:) info. in TweakUI)
