mapped (F, G, H, O and R). These, obviously, resolve after login (WindowsXP
Professional). I've recently purchased a 12-in-1 media card reader. If I
plug the device in before the computer is on, it maps 4 drives ( F, G, H and
I ), therefore not allowing the network drives to map. If I plug it in
after I boot the computer, only one drive ( I ) gets mapped, rendering the
other 3 slots/drive on the device useless.
Seeing as I cannot map the network drives to different letters (due to
network software hardcoding), how can I get my hardware to map 'around' the
other drive mappings?
Thanks for your time,

With the card reader plugged in...
Go to the Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management.
Look under Storage for 'Disk Management'.
You should see all your PCs drives.
Right click through all the card reader drives and select 'Change Drive
Assign them to drive letters which are not used by any of your mapped
