H: Drive missing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was setting up a dell computer today and realized that this person had an H drive on their computer. I was looking at my comp today and thought that I had one as well, but it looks like I don't. Is this normal, or did I make a dumb mistake and not install one of my drives right? Maybe my media card reader is not displayed right, or something. Any ideas?

That's weird though because I asked someone else who has an HP and they have an H: drive too. The thing is their computer only has one hard drive and thats it. I guess its not really a big deal, but I was just wondering.

Most HP/dell/gateway computers come memory card ports.

Windows automatically assigns drive letters to storage devices that it finds.

your's may have the same physical device but assigned a different letter.

If you partition your hard drive then each partition will also be assigned a different drive letter...like myself.

I have one 80G HDD that is divided into 3 partitions...system, appz, shared.

windows has assigned the following drive letters.

system = C:
DVD-RW = D:
applications = E:
shared = F:

I also have virtual DVD drives and a USB HDD.......each device is assigned the next letter depending on which order Windows detects them.
