How to change DVD drive letters

I would like to change the letters of my 2 DVD drives to X and Z but I can't find a way to do it. There is a way because I read some one doing it.

Thanks

Thanks, all I had to do was scroll down and I would have seen the drives. Problem solved. Thanks again, now I can continue with my dual load set up, Vista and Win 7.
