    Windows 8 doesn't show hard disk on letter (B:)

    I have a hard disc on (B and when I got to my computer it does not show it but if I go to manage it shows it. On windows 7 it works fine it does not have windows 7 or 8 on it and is classic hdd not ssd. It will show anything that has a letter from c and above it shows my other 3 hard disks. Any ideas on how to fix this without changing the letter drive?

    A and B are really reserved for floppies. The fact that it works in Win7 is purely accidental. No big deal, just change the drive letter.
