I did a search in Google for "How to assign a drive letter to a thumbdrive", (without the quotes), and got a number of hits. The first one looks useful;
If not, try "How to assign drive letters in Windows XP".
I hope that helps.
I have a thumbdrive with some files and apps I use when taking work home to work on there.
I have Aida32 in a folder on that drive (yes it's old but still somewhat useful). I would like to have a shortcut to the exe in the Aida folder in the root of the drive so I can run it from there. I can create one just fine, the only problem is the drive letter won't always be the same. So, I have to edit the shortcut to change the drive letter if I want to use it.
I found there is an environment variable %cd% which is the current directory. I tried to use that in the shortcut, but it won't accept it. I get a "The name '%cd%Aida\aida32.exe' specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct".
Is it possible to do this or not? I have tried quotes around the whole string but that didn't fly either.
