Yesterday I cleaned my hard drive (C) and installed new MSWindows XP Pro on the drive. Afterwords the drive came up as drive G - not C and subsequently many of my programs will not install most importantly my printer program appparently because it is looking for drive C. Help? Changed operating system disk - bought new one - because computer would not recognize my earlier version of Windows XP Pro. The hard drive is 40 gigs and the RAM is 1 gig.
When I checked device manager I saw that two usb drives were named ahead of the former c drive one usb being named C and the other D. Additionally CD and DVD drives were incorrectly renamed - one named E which had been D and one named F which had been E. The usb port with my WD Passport (40 gig) was named H and it came up0 correctly after the reinstall as H.
