I have both a Zip Drive and a SparQ Drive and they are both internal.  Everytime I put the Drivers for the SparQ and the Zip Drive together on my machine it says removable drive i, j but when I right click on the removable I: (SparQ) it shows the Zip Tools how can I keep it from doing this? Also how can relabel the SparQ Drive to Sparq drive, instead of removable drive i:? Also, can I have the Icon read SparQ Disk Drive and the Zip Drive icon to Zip Drive?

Jm,

  It looks like Win98 can't distinguish between the two.  That is, all it knows is that both are Removable Drives and that is all it cares about.  As for changing the name of the drives in explorer, i don't think you can do this without a 3rd party utility.  I have a zip and it reads "removable drive" in explorer and i can't change it unless i use MicroAngelo.  To get this program, go to Yahoo and search for Microangelo.

As for changing the icons to different names on your desktop, right click on it and select Rename.
