When Microsoft Windows XP detects the Media Card Reader, the
device is automatically assigned a drive letter as the next logical drive after all other physical drives in
the system. If the next logical drive after the physical drives is mapped to a network drive, Windows XP
does not automatically assign a drive letter to the Media Card Reader.
To manually assign a drive for the Media Card Reader:
1
Right-click My Computer and select
Manage
.
2
Select the
Disk Management
option.
3
Right-click the corresponding drive letter in the right pane that needs to be changed.
4
Select
Drive Letter and Paths.
5
From the drop-down list, select the new drive letter assignment for the Media Card Reader.
6
Click
OK
to confirm your selection.
NOTE:
The Media Card Reader appears as a mapped drive only when it is connected. Each of the four
Media Card Reader slots are mapped to a drive even if no media is installed. If you attempt to access the
Media Card Reader when no media is inserted, you are prompted to insert media.
