    Hi,
    I 'm trying to install the treo 650 program form the disc to my computer. The program will run to the end and tell me it can't install because i don't have drive C: as my drive letter.
    My hard drive in my computer is drive letter E:
    I need to change the letter to C:

    I had this same problem about a month ago when i installed the software for my treo 600, But I figured out how to change the drive letter, But I can't remember how I did it.
    Anyone ran into this problem, And can you tell me how to solve it?

    Thanks much

    I've exactly the same problem before, my PC has a CF reader connected during XP installation and it is setup as C, I've to reinstall XP without the CF reader to fix that, not only for the Palm but also for other s/w, boot drive being E is inconvenient, sorry can't help......

    Palm Desktop REQUIRES C: to be there when installing. It is something which is hardcoded in a stupid way in the installation program.

    You could try the plain old DOS command SUBST (invoke from command line window) to remap E: to C:
    U:\>subst /?
    Associates a path with a drive letter.

    SUBST [drive1: [drive2:]path]
    SUBST drive1: /D

    drive1: Specifies a virtual drive to which you want to assign a path.
    [drive2:]path Specifies a physical drive and path you want to assign to
    a virtual drive.
    /D Deletes a substituted (virtual) drive.

    Type SUBST with no parameters to display a list of current virtual drives.
    An alternative is to go into Control panel - Admin tools and remap the disk letters from there.
