Hd Is Mislabeled

i have 2 Hd's (6g + 40g) and when i reinstalled winXP is swapped them......6g is now C: and the 40g is now E: but windows is on E: so it dosnt really matter but its just annoying to dick around with this C/E bs so how do i flip them back(making the 40g = C 'cause all i use my 6gig for is DiVX storage ect...

Perhaps the HDDs's jumpers may do the trick. I'd imagine that jumpering the 40 Gb drive as Primary Master, and removing the IDE and Power connectors from the 6 Gb temporarily may do the trick. Then reintroduce the 6 Gb HDD into your system.

Too true, mrpcman. The newer the release of the MS OS, the less it seems to like. Sorta.
