CD drive letter assignment

I installed a cdrom on my computer and the system recognizes it being there, but there is no drive letter assigned to it.  I went into control panel>system>device manager and tried to assign a drive letter to it, but there were none available.  How can I assign a drive letter to the cdrom drive?

here is what you can do remove the ddevice from device manager. Do not reboot first. Now edit your config.sys file using a notepad. THis file is located at the root of your hdd. Now add in the line lastdrive = Z .BTW if this line has already exist. remove it and place the new one.

does it show in windows explorer?
also if you have tweakui (control panel) go to my computer tab, and  make sure there is a check mark next to the drive letters
