    Might be trying to assign a letter already in use or reserved by something else. A guy was having trouble with USB drives and when I unchecked that, it was packed from A to Z.

    It was initially set to use the letter E, which isn't used by any other drives.

    Anyhow, I tried disabling hiding empty drives, and now I can't access the disk at all. Might be because chkdsk is doing it's thing, I don't know.
