    hello, i have a LG 52X cd-rom and a LG 16x12x42 cd-rw

    and for SOME reason, the CD-RW is the Defualt cd drive....
    when the cd-rom is the slave...

    ...is there a way to make my accually cd-rom my main cd-rom?????

    Are you wanting to change drive letters?? If so then go to control panel> administrative tools> computer management> highlight storage in the left side of this window. In the right side, lower section, right click on the drive you want to change and select "change drive letter and paths." I'm guessing that what you mean by "default" is the order of drive letter designation.

    If you mean the cdrw is the one the BIOS boots from from then you'll have to change the master/slave jumpers on the drives

    what i mean, is that everything i load uses my cd-rw drive, and not my cd-rom

    Are you saying that if you load, say, a games from your cd, when you try and play the games then it looks for the cd in the cdrw ?
