Is it possible to assign Drive Letter A (or B) to an external USB hard drive? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to assign Drive Letter A (or B) to my external USB hard drive (I have no floppies!). After reading the forums and MS help I can easily use Disk Management to change or assign any drive letter OTHER than A or B; Microsoft says that you can however reassign Drive A or B if you have no floppy drives.

    Using disk management, drive letters A & B just do not appear in the selection list; I've tried through Diskpart, which gives the error message

    "DiskPart could not assign the drive letter or mount point.
     Make sure the drive letter or mount point is valid."
