Here's a procedure I wrote up in 2007 at:


Goes something like this:

If you have a USB flash drive, you can use it and
simply remap it to the A: drive.  Insert the USB
flash drive into one of the front panel USB sockets.
In my case, it turned out to be the J: drive.  It
will likely be something else on other systems.

Then, I went to the Windows Desktop and right-clicked
on "My Computer."  Clicked on "Manage" and "Disk
Management."  All the drives appear in the upper right
portion of the resulting window.  Then, I right-clicked
on the J: drive and "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
to call it the A: drive.

That probably sounds harder than it really is.
It's just a few appropriate clicks to change the
drive letter.

Of course, the flashing light on the USB flash
drive is a little annoying...  :-)
