more info please?
laptop, desktop, ancient, modern?
only one? several?
backups or not?
Do you know what the problem is and want confirmation or are you really stuck?
Happy to help as soon as the problem is nearly identified (by yourself. Why did the drive change? Have you reinstalled? have you changed physical layout. What's going on!!

"any ideas what might have changed this?" - Ummm, no.

Sorry :-(

You can change it back if you like.

Start > Run > Copy and Paste:


Then right click your CD drive and the bottom choose "Change drive letter and path...".

Click change and choose D once again.
