How can you assign a drive letter to a hard drive?

by WhynotZz / May 27, 2008 12:02 AM PDT

I am having issues with getting my computers to assign a drive letter to a newly created portable hard drive. I tried XP and Vista and even DOS. The drive is listed in the device manager, but there isn't a way that I can find to access it. Please help!

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
