Cannot use CD drive if label is "A:" or B:\"

Took me ages to figure out what was wrong and to solve the problem. When I configured my new Win7(64) laptop, I renamed my CD/DVD burner B: instead of D: because I don't have and never intend to add a floppy drive. While the software provided with my system was able to use the drive without any problem, and even iTunes could rip from it and burn to it, MediaMonkey 3 was completely unable work with it, although it did list it under "My Computer" in the location section of the navigation window.

Since A: and B: are available drive letters, it would be reasonable to allow the CD/DVD burner to use those labels.

However, once I realized what the problem was, I relabeled my CD/DVD drive D:, and now MediaMonkey is able to use it just fine.

I have since updated to MediaMonkey 4, and have not tested to see if the problem still occurs, but I thought I would mention it anyway.
