Right click on the Computer icon on the Desktop and select Manage option.

Select Storage > Disk Management.

Right click on the CD/DVD icon in the bottom panel and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."

Change the letter and select OK.

For future readers, I had what appeared to be a CD drive showing up in Windows Explorer taking up a drive letter, but it didn't show up in Disk Management. It turned out to be Power ISO software I had installed. I just right clicked the drive and changed the Power ISO option to free up that drive letter. –  Ben Jun 5 '13 at 20:12

Would just like to add (only because mine wasn't showing up) that there must be a disk in the CD/DVD drive for it to show up in the Disk Management area.
