Windows uses characters A-Z for drive letters on English installations.

For languages with non-Latin character sets (Chinese, Japanese, Arabic etc), are letters A-Z still assigned to drives?

In short... yes. Farther still... non-latin letters that appear to be the same letter in English do not translate the same. For instance, the Russian с (cyrillic s) will not translate to the latin c. For a test... copy с:\ into an address bar in the windows explorer and it will complain that it does not exist... where as c:\ will show the contents of your c drive.
