The drive letters are assigned by Winodws and pretty much can't be changed. You can name the drives anything you want.

Mine are
C: System
D: Programs
E: Zip Backup
F: Pagefile

Leave the DVD/CD/Floppy alone. They say what they are or the title of whatever is in them.

Open my computer, right clcik the drive you want to rename, select rename. The present name box appears highlighted in gray. Just type in what you want it to be.
 
you can change all the drive letters except the OS drive with disk management.

Right-click My Computer, Manage, go to disk management. Right click on the CD drive and select Change Drive letter and paths.

Yes..... but the question was to change names not drive letters / paths !

i don't think you can change that. you can change the 'names' on hard drives...but not optical drives.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
