Mj2c and Jenny100, I have not used any of the above mentioned programs. I just simply transfered photos to disc and the drive letter changed. I do not have a clue. My burning program is Roxio, could D drive be there now?

Drive D may be assigned to another device, does it show up in the list at all?

Not sure what you mean by "there," but Roxio does have capability to create a virtual CD drive.

InlandAZ, In Disk Mangement, D does not appear in the list of optional drive letters.
Jenny100, By "there " I was refering to Roxio. Perhaps Roxio hijacked Drive D. I do not have the computer knowledge to know how to find where Drive D disappeared too. Drive F aeems to work fine, it is just frustrating to have Drive D there one minute and gone the next and have no clue as to what happened. To someone like me, with very limited computer knowledge, it is kind of scary to have things just disappear.

You have to understand that "drive D" did not disappear. What happened is that the drive letter D has somehow gotten assigned somewhere else - perhaps to your computer in an alternate time warp! No matter what driver letter is assigned to your optical drives, what matters is that they are working for you.

If a drive letter changing was the only issue I ever encountered, I would rejoice!

Draclvr, You are so right. I can certainly live with this minor change. It just baffles me! I may never where D went, but F works just as well. So all is well!

It may be assigned to a hidden partition, you should see it in the list of drives (in the lower pane).

InlandAZ, I do not know where the "lower Pane" you are referring to is located.

So nothing currently has the drive letter D? Or maybe virtual drives don't show up in the Disk Management Tool?

I'm guessing you created a virtual drive without meaning to. If you browse your hard drives with Windows Explorer (not IE), does anything show up as a drive D?

It's possible you mounted an iso (or other image file) without meaning to by double-clicking it. That might happen if you have software install that can handle the mounting of disk image files. If it's still mounted, you should be able to see it in Windows Explorer. Drive letters appear in Windows Explorer in Win7 something like this

or this

Yep, that's about the only thing I can think of. Virual drives will not be listed unless an ISO is mounted.

Jenny100, Using Windows Explorer to access My Computer, shows nothing different. Letter D is no where in sight. Whatever happened, happened while I was transferring photos from computer to disc.

Did you do that using a USB device? That would take up a place.

mj2c,
USB drives usually take up the higher drive letters without a problem. I've never seen one boot a CD/DVD drive off its drive letter.

I suspect your finger trembled at an inopportune moment and caused something weird to happen with Roxio. It may be reserving D: just in case you ever decide to mount a drive image. Does your Roxio interface look anything like this?
