    Thank you for posting!


    To change the drive letter for your removable disk, please use the following steps:


    1.    On Windows Vista-based computer, click Start icon and click Run

    2.    Type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter. Click Continue if receiving the UAC prompt.

    3.    Right-click the volume rectangle that represents the removable disk and select Change Drive Letter or Path

    4.    Click Change

    5.    Assign the proper drive letter.

    6.    Click OK and check the issue again.


    Hope it helps!
