I had to dig myself out of a problem that I believe resulsted from a faulty MB IDE controller; the end result was I rebuilt the hardware & reinstalled Win-XP. System is running great, but I'd like to change the order in which my drives appear.
Drive listing as follows:
C: RAID1 Arry
D: 160GB HD
E,F,G,H: USB / memory card reader removable drives / internal USB header.
I: CD R/W
I would like drives I & J appear before E,F,G, & H. When I try to change the drive letter, the system warns "the may result in a problem." I see means of resolving:
1. Remove E,F,G,H and I&J. Reinstall the CD/DVD drives on the IDE, establish their presence. And then resintall the memory card reader on the internal USB headers.
2. Delete drivers for USB components in E,F,G, H; and then del drivers for I/J.
Then reinstall drivers, 1st for I/J, then for the USB.
Are items 1/2 the correct approach? If not, pls let me know & suggest an alternative. Item #1 I can do, it is just a pain. I prefer #2 if it makes sense. But it concerns because, once I delete the drivers, I don't know where/how to get these drivers. They are standard & distributed by Microsoft with Windows. Yet, I don't know how to reinstall them.
