yo. when i baught my computer it came with a card reader. the slots in the card reader were for some reason assigned the drive letters c: e: f: and g:. This resulted in the computer assigning my hard drive the letter h:. This is very annoying because when i anstall programs etc. i have to change the default path of installation. I have tried to use computer management > disk management, but when i try to change the drive letter it states:

"Windows cannot modify the drive letter of your system volume or boot volume"

screenshot of my predicament

All i want is to change the drive letter from h: to c:
I hope this doesnt turn out that i have to remove the card reader manually then install it again after i have assigned my hard drive the letter c:

Please assist...

Bingo!!.... That's your best bet.

It's only going to take 5 minutes of your time.

[Added Info]
While you're at it, check the pins on your hard drives and make sure the one you want to have as drive C is set as the master.
