What are the steps to do after changing the drive letter of your DVD-ROM considering the fact that your OS, programs & games with installation discs were installed on this drive. And re-inserting a game disc or doing disc repair on the same drive would not function because of the drive letter change. What other changes or configurations does one have to undertake making a non-functional drive to work with the new drive letter with regards to OS disc & game discs. OS is Win XP Pro SP3 and a brief tutorial would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
In "most" cases you shouldn't have to do much if anything. games requiring the cd in the drive to play; for example...you install the game on the hard drive and when you play it prompts for the cd......it will simply look for a cd player regardless of the drive letter. Most things are like that, unless you have a specific case of something that is no longer functioning. Renaming a hard drive letter can require some changes but you are usually fine with the cd.dvd's.
So changing a drive letter would not even make a difference... game installed on the old drive letter can be played on the same drive with the new drive letter. So there's no other configurations to do other than just changing the drive letter. If that's the case then I have no worries. Thank you for taking the time to educate me. Appreciate it.
