    How to change the drive letter from H: to G: ?

    When I put my usb in my pc I see on my Computer a new drive letter H:
    So now I have: C: D: E:
    Floppy: A: and my DVD as F: and a Removeable disk I: but I don't have a any removeable disk on any usb port in my pc.

    When I put now my other usb it's assigining it as drive H:
    But I need it to be G: since I need to save to it something from a program I saved before and it must be G: not H:

    How can I change/force it to be drive letter G: instead H: ?

    Hello Chocolade, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You could connect both drives, then use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to play shuffle the drive letters around to change them to what you wanted.
