    Hi

    If you could take a screen clip of Disk Management and post it here maybe someone can tell you what is going on.

    Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Create and Format Hard Disk Partitions.

    Use the Snipping Tool.
    Save it to the desktop and select Insert Image above.

    To change drive letters: Your optical drive will be set as drive D. To change the drive letters you need to go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, storage, disk management.

    First right click on the optical drive and change the drive letter to F.
    The right click on your new drive and change it from E to D.
    Finally right click on the optical drive again and change it to E.

    You need to read my instructions more carefully I think - change D to F, then E to D, then F to E.
