When you boot from a live boot CD (eg system repair CD) drives letters can be all over the place.
I have finally gotten around to attempting to sort this issue out. I did as mjf suggested and used the free partition wizard and it worked like a charm once I got rid of the 100MB recovery partition. backed up first of course.

Thanks to everyone who made a post to help here, it is much appreciated.
