Subject: RE: ack! Computer no longer assigns my jukebox player a driveletter!
From: cdj (
Date: 2004-04-20

Brian -

(a) It did "just" start happening - about a week ago

(b) I use tweakui, though not to hide drive letters, unless I'm much

(c) More likely, perhaps, is the fact that I use daemon-tools as a
cd/iso emulator; however,

(d) I've used d-tools consistently as long as I've had my archos; it
isn't clear to me why it would now be "hogging" drive letters......

Anyhoo...... As soon as I get a cup of coffee, I'll give it a go without

Thanks a bunch,

Is it possible that all the available drive letters are hidden with a
utility like TweakUI? Maybe windows just doesn't have anything else it
thinks it can use for the jukebox? Did this just start happening, and if

so, did you recently install any other new hardware or software?
