Do the following:
1. Open "Control Panel."
2. navigate to "Administrative Tools."
3. Navigate to "Computer Management."
4. When "Computer Management" opens, go down until you see "Storage."
5. arrow down, probably twice, until you find "Disc Management."
6. Once you land on "Disc Management," you should be dropped into a listbox
that has a list of all the drives as well as the letters they are assigned
to. If not, Tab until you do reach this listbox.

9. Right arrow to open the menu and then arrow down until you find "Change
drive letter and paths..."
10. Hit enter and then tab until you find "Change... Button."
11. press space, then tab until you find a listbox that contains the letters
of the alphabet. Arrow down until you find one that you know is not being
used by your system and tab to the "OK button."
12. A warning will come up letting you know that changing a drive letter
could make some programs not run. Just tell it that yes you do want to
change it, and you will be taken back to that listbox where all your drives
are and your IPod should now sho the letter you just assigned to it, and it
should come right up.
