I somehow changed my drive to my cd. When I put in a cd, it usually starts right up, now it says cannot read from Q:\???????, its supposed to be D. It says file has been removed or moved. How can I get this Q out of there and get my cd's to work properly in the D drive????

Open the Explorer and look for the character between the () at the end of the CD-ROM name. For instance (D)

CricketC,
  Start > Run > NOTEPAD AUTOEXEC.BAT
  This will open up your autoexec file - is there an entry for MSCDEX in there ?
  In which case does it mention Q: ?
  If this is the case, go to an MS-DOS command prompt and rename CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT and leave them in a safe place.
  Then restart the system - Windows 95 should then autodetect your CD ROM and assign it the next free drive after your hard drives (probably D: by the sounds of things).
  If this is not the case, you can edit the drive letter in the registry by opening REGEDIT and running a search on CurrentDriveLetter until you get to your CDROM device.
  Make sure you backup your registry first !!
