Yes but it is a bit flaky - there are some registry settings to do this - I have a multicard reader the shows up with the drive card types as names (even when there are no cards loaded) such as E:(CF card)

If you grabbed it before now, redownload!, I added a 'Reset' feature, so you can always return them to how they were :)

One (probably) final addition to the code so it didn't throw an exception... (ReDownload)

by the way here is the download for MS .NET2 runtimes:
http://www.microsoft...5&DisplayLang=en

these could be useful for other programs so definitely worth installing.

It should... in the screenshot, G is an Alcohol 120% virtual drive... Try using the Reset button on the drive first, then set it...

Oh, my bad... sorry.  Of course it works. I didn't realize there was an image mounted, so Windows displayed the volume label... ;)

Just updated it, now 1.1, when you change the letter, it shows the current value in the Input box, along with one or two 'under the bonnet' changes ;)

briliant idea and brilliant (and swift) execution.

this sort of thing just makes me wonder why it isn't part of the operating system already. seems like an obvious thing to want after you've seen it done.

This looks little tricky. But let me check whether it can be done or not. It is a challenge now.  I love to experiment  such things I have tried some on my .  I think it will take time because I am going to work on such issue first time. Let us see what happens. If anyone found the solution, please post the full details, not only the solution. So that I can try something else with the help of this solution. I have something new in mind.
