How to change the drive letter for CD drive on Windows 7? I want to map network location to the letter that is currently used by my CD drive.

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

Select Storage > Disk Management or just run diskmgmt.msc (administrative rights needed).

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

Change the letter and select OK.

Change Drive Letter and Paths

In some cases, for the drive's entry to show up in Disk Management, it has to have a readable CD/DVD inserted.

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. – user55925 Nov 17 '10 at 15:42
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
