Remap Drive Letters

We have Windows based computers that have internal card readers that map several letters.

We have shares that occupy letters such as I: that do not mount due to local drive mapping.

Is their any VB script that can be run that will search for removable drives and map as WXY or Z .

I would like the C - K ignored

Thanks in advance

If you use the disk management console and change the drive letter, it won't change back and will stay at whatever letter you assign it.  Unless you reboot the computer without the card readers installed.

That is how we currently remap them.  We use a K-Box to install the entire build and wanted a script to run and remap drives.

I think this will work if we use it to check out shares that we map.
