I can't rename a drive letter under my Window 95?
Posted on 1997-05-29
I have a SCSI removable hard drive that comes up as my F: drive.
I would like it to come up as another drive letter, like drive N:
or something. How do you do that under Windows 95?
I go to System Properties and list Disk Drives under View devices
by type. I see the drive listed "iomega jaz 1GB". Under its
settings, the "Current drive letter assignment" is "F:", but the
field is read-only. I cannot change it. The section marked
Reserve drive letters is all dimmed.
The other settings are:
Target ID: 3 (which is the scsi ID I'm using for this drive)
Firmware revision: H.71
Logical unit number: 0
Disconnect is checked
Removable is checked
Synch data transfer is checked
Int 13 unit is checked, but is also read-only (can't change the setting)
Auto insert notification is is not checked, but is also read-only.
Other things that may be useful.
I have two IDE controllers in my computer. The first IDE controller has
two hard drives on it, my C and D drives. The second IDE controller has
one drive on it. I've partititioned it into six partitions. For some
reason they come out to be drives E, G, H, I, J, K.
