Assign new letter to drives?

  BRACEA 18:07 22 May 2003

I am using windows ME.
I have 2 HDD - C; and D;. These are not partitioned.They are master and slave on IDE 1.
I have a CDROM drive E: and CD Writer G: The CDROM is on IDE2 and the |CD Writer is on a highpoint card which provides two addiitonal IDE's.
Finally I have an OMEGA Zip 250Mg removable drive connected to IDE2 with the drive letter F:. How can I change this from F: to B:?

Windows reserves Drives A and B for floppy discs. ZIP, CD and DVD are seen as removable storage devices, and are numbered consecutively after hard drives.

You can enter Device Manager and change the ZIP to a higher letter, (e.g. drive Z), but not drive B.
