Drive Letter Designations

By tmatos ·
I reinstalled W2k o/s on a P4 computer that had two physical hard drives. I installed the o/s on C. Upon installing an internal iomega zip drive my second physical hard drive became the c drive. Now certain programs are not running correctly. Can you help me return the local drive to C.

You can change the letter of the drive by just right clicking on the drive and select rename. If that doesn't work then just go in to my control panel and then click on Administrator tools. Under Administrator Tools just click on Management Computer, or something like it. Then on the left side of that window click on the tap that says Disk Management, and in there you can select the drive you want and change the name by right click it and select whatever tap you want. That's all good luck.

It sounds like you may have installed the zip drive on the same ide cable as your C Drive.
If you installed it on the end of the cable it will act as the Master drive.
If this is the case, try switching the drives on the cable.
There may be jumper settings to fiddle with too.

Make sure you have both HD's on the same IDE cable (IDE 0) and that the C drive jumper is set to MASTER and the other to SLAVE. Put the ZIP drive on the other IDE cable and make sure that the jumpers are set to MASTER or SLAVE if you also have a CDor DVD on that cable. This assumes that the ZIP drive is IDE. If it is a SCSI drive check your documentation and also your BIOS boot sequence.
