Hi everybody,
I've got an external hard drive and it has always been the E drive, even after unplugging it and taking it to other computers, bringing it back and plugging it in a different USB port. I have a lot of things linked to it as the E:/, including roughly 7000 songs and so on and now it has changed to the F drive. Everything has been unlinked and I can't figure out how to change it back!

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Wow easy enough, except anything before F drive is not available to use. E drive is labled "removable disk", but there isn't anything there! I figured I could change the E to something else and change the F to the E, but the E drive isn't available in the disk management.

Which program are you using to play your songs?

I use iTunes, but I haven't run it in weeks (I don't think).

Try changing the current E drive to something way down the list, like W, then make the F drive E, then you change the W drive to F or whatever. :thumbsup:

Okay, so I think I've got the problem fixed.

My card reader was always the H drive and my External was always my E drive. For some reason my external was F drive and the card reader was E, but the E drive wasn't showing up in Disk Management, so I couldn't change that back to H and I couldn't change the F drive to E since it was reserved. I stuck a memory card into the card reader and THEN it changed the E drive from Removable Disk to EOS_Digital, making it available to change in Disk Management. So I've changed everything back to how it used to be and let's hope it stays that way after a restart.

What would have caused those drives to change like that?
