How do you get Windows 98 to assign a drive letter to a newly attached drive that it is able to see but has not assigned a drive letter to?

if the drive formatted? check drive properties (right click on new drive), and see if it has a file system on it. FAT/FAT32/NTFS if not right click drive again and click format quick is ok if it is a new drive, if not just click start should have a letter after format and a restart.

You have no hard drives listed. You have the ability to assign any drive letter (except the Main 'C' ) to your hard drives using "Computer Management"

Windows 98 should automaticly assign it a drive letter. You can try running new hardware wizard in the control panel if the wizard does not find it you might also check the jumper on the drive itself and make sure it is not conflicting with any other drive (set the same as the hard drive)

Classid is used to assign a particular object to a given string. For example, if the classid="t", then the letter 't' maybe used to refer to the particular object that was assigned.

Windows does not allow you to label an unallocated space. You must create a partition and format first if you want to make use of this space.

The same way you do with any other drive. When you insert the pen drive into your computer, Windows will assign it a letter (unless that capability has been disabled on a network).

Try this: Attached is a letter and invoice.

After the USB drive has been inserted, it will be assigned a drive letter. From this point, you would open the CMD prompt and type: FORMAT F: (enter) Be sure to replace F: with the thumb drive's drive letter which is assigned by your operating system. If you format the wrong drive letter, you will lose all the data stored on that drive letter.

In Windows, it is called "C:" (without quotes). In Linux, it is called "/" (also without quotes). I don't know about Mac, sorry.

In the IBM and Microsoft DOS, Windows and OS/2 platform, the primary hard drive is assigned the letter C and is referenced as C:. In the Unix/Linux related environment, its name depends on the type of drive and connection such as sda hda fda but when mounted it is referenced as the root directory (or "/").

A cover letter is usually attached to a resume.

The default is C: that is the default drive letter, the default drive number is Disk 0

In Windows operating systems, the drive letter (F in this example) is assigned to a logical partition of an internal, external or even virtual device, so it could stand for any of these.

Mapped network drive. In Windows networks, an external resource has the form "\\MyServer\MyFolder\MySubFolder\MyFile.doc". The folder part, "\\MyServer\MyFolder\MySubFolder", can be assigned ("mapped") to a drive letter, for example, "M:"; in that case, you refer to the document as "M:\MyFile.doc".Mapped network drive.

You can'tassigntwo different drives the same letter. If you are having an hard drive or hard disk then you can make different partition and then assign each partition differently, but can not assign same letter for two or more drives.

{| |- | Depends on what is being attached. If it is a single item, the correct term would be 'Attached is.' If it is multiple items, the correct usage would be 'Attached are.' |}

Lets say you install XP, Insert your CD into your CD-ROM and boot from it. Once the installation has finished loading you will be presented with a menu from whom you can choose onto witch drive to install windows. Don't install windows but instead press D to delete the highlighted partition and then you will be presented with a confirmation paragraph witch you will have to press S to confirm (note.. this is only for the boot partition normally "c", you will not have the confirmation when you delete other non-primary partitions) and once the primary is deleted do the same for the next one "D". Next you will have to create 17 partitions using your total disk space divided by 17, to do this highlight your free space and then just press "C" and specify the amount of disk space you would like to use and press enter so for example if you have 250GB you would make 17 partitons of 14.7GB. Once this is done, partially install windows onto your "S" partition, once the files are done copying from installation prep screen and reboots, load windows xp install from your CD to get the installation menu again. Next, delete all partitions and create a new one with all of the available space and it will be automatically assigned the letter "T" since settings was pre loaded into memory that your boot disk was "S". But if you know a bit about prompts commands you could delete your two partitions then create a new one, take down the drive letter and press F3. At the command prompt type: diskpart At the DISKPART prompt, type: list volume Make note of the number of the simple volume whose drive letter you want to assign, change, or remove. At the DISKPART prompt, type: select volume n Select the volume, where n is the volume's number, whose drive letter you want to assign, change, or remove. At the DISKPART prompt, type one of the following: assign letter=T Where T is the drive letter you want to assign or change. remove letter=T Where T is the drive letter you want to remove. Then reload your windows installation and install. Much simpler this way if you know what you are doing ;)

It all depends on the context surrounding it, but in and of itself "please see attached letter" is correct.

windows should automaticly recognize your slave drive and run it as the next available letter drive for example i have a 2tb hard drive partitioned to c, d, and e. i then have my DVD drive named f. with the remaining unallocated space (not formated to a recognizable state) i partitioned to g,h,i,j and my 500gb harddrive comes up as my k drive.

The child's artwork is attached to the refrigerator. The fisherman attached the bait to his hook. He attached the birthday card to the gift. The little girl is very attached to her twin sister. A letter of recommendation is attached to the application. She gave the gift freely, with no strings attached.

While writing Caption (in vb) and Text (in vb.net) place '&' symbol before the letter you want to assign from keyboard. While executing, press ALT and that letter to access the button via keyboard Thanks Aarti Rathore

None. A letter has no numerical value unless it represents a variable and a value is assigned to it.

Interpreted means to make sense of; assign a meaning to; "What message do you see in this letter?"; "How do you interpret his behavior?"

" Please find the attached file of your application letter for administration position " . It is grammatically correct however the contextually questionable.If you are sending an application filled by you then :"Please find the attached file of the application letter for the administration position "
