If you have XP, the drive letter change is somewhat complicated.

Go to your desktop and highlight My Computer.
Press the Apps key ( brings up the context menu)
select Manage
You are now in the Computer Management dialog
Press the letter "D" until you hear  Disk Management
Wait for a few seconds. A list will automatically come up with the hardware 
drives and their assigned letters.
Scroll down to the one you want to change
*NOTE* if you are changing a drive with removable media, you will need to have 
media in that drive before doing any of this stuff.
Route JAWS to PC 
Insert-Keypad Right arrow to hear the drive letter.
Right click using the keypad
Now use the standard up/down arrow to move through the context menu and find 
"Change drive letter and paths..."
In this dialog  go back to the PC cursor and Tab until you hear "Change... 
  Then tab to the combo box and select the letter you want.
  Press Enter and climb back out.

  As long as you always mount this same hardware drive to the same USB, it 
should stay with that letter.

  Good luck.

  Hey GuysZ:


  Firstly, does anyone know of a jaws compatible way to change the letter of a 
drive.  I am trying to rename my second hard drive drive E and the computer 
seems to want to call it G for some reason.  Also have any of you ever used the 
programe safe xp and if so is it jaws compatible.  According to what I read on 
the net, it is supposed to resolve windows update issues as my windows updating 
is not working.  Thanks.
