Yes very kind
But more to the point what is your expert opinion about attempting to assign a drive letter way back in the thread discussion? (Post #21).

I personally change the drive letter on the DVD first to something in the M,N,O range before i partition or add a HDD then the first partition or HDD gets the first letter after C:/ and so on for each new drive or partition, i also name them for what i'm using them for. Hope that's what you were asking.

Same here.

I like to have two optical drives to make disc copying a one-step process. I have a P: (Player) and R: (Recorder) setup which helps my aging brain cells keep them straight.
