I can rename 2 of them, and one of them are the disc I have WinXP on.

The one that I have problem renaming is the one that im used to download stuff to.
All I got on that drive is Movies.

When I try to rename that one it says that i dont have enough "rights" to rename it.
I am inloged as administrator.


:mad:

right click on the drive, go to properties, and then the security tab (if the security tab isn't there, go into folder options and disable "simple file sharing"...that's for pro, if you're on home...boot into safe mode and it should appear)

then modify your permissions so that you have "Full Control" if you need more specific information on how to do that, i'd be happy to post again :)

In control panel/administrative tools/computer managment/disk management(in the left colume) Now first rename cdrom E to G then rename drive F to E change cdrom G back to F

Yes I am...
Atleast in fail-safe mode.

On my regular start up I only have my account, so it logs in by it self.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
