My links are pointing to "f', so they are not working now.  

Thanks,

This is probably in the article referenced above, but since I didn't go check it out ...

Right-click Computer, Manage, Disk Management, right-click your I: drive, and change drive letter.  It may be showing as I: instead of F: because another device was inserted, taking F:, so you  might have to remove or reassign F: before you can change I: back to it.

make sure you dont have another drive called f, if so disconnect it.
Virtual drives can somehting do this or mounted ISO images. disable them

Goto Start and type diskmgmt.msc

click on the drive that is named i > right click and goto change drive path change it to F and click yes to the prompt
