Hi, sorry for troubling you with this problem. No issues. The d drive works smoothly and every folder is having its correct attributes. while messing around fixing cd dvd problem, Fix it portable has somehow crept in to d drive. The view at Disk management is default local disk D. In safety mode also the view is default D Drive. But in explorer only this problem. C also has some strange icon, other than usual Local Disk C. How to correct it
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

Disk manager is where you can change drive letters, just right click on the drive there and you will have the option. :wink:

Hi, the problem was solved by deleting an autorun.inf file in the D folder, which runs microsoft fix it. It is not immediate. But after reboot, there was a flash window message for somethintg and it wanished, and my local disk d has the default letter. I do not know how an autorun.inf would superimpose on a default drive and make changes to a drive letter. anybody knows.

The autorun shouldnt have been running that, very odd.

Hi, Shane sir, i have downloaded the microsoft fix portable from msoft.I also executed this fix to fix my cd dvd problem . But i donot have any inkling that it does create a autorun.inf to run. the exact words are
This is the contents of fix it all
[AUTORUN]
OPEN=FIXITP~1\LAUNCH~1.EXE
ICON=FIXITP~1\LAUNCH~1.EXE
LABEL=Fix it portable
ACTION=Fix it portable

How can this superimpose a drive in a pc, sir,

autorun files are there to tell Windows to run something when you insert the drive. IN this case you dont need it, so deleting it was the thing to do :-)
