Now that I am able to read the Drive's Firmware Serial Number (See previous post) is there some way to relate this physical drive with the Drive letter assigned by Windows by means other than 'digitalocksmith' suggested (i.e. hardware id's in the Details window) ?
I have found a solution to my problem on the internet at www.alexnolan.net which has a freeware program that works under Windows XP called 'Drive Manage' created in January of 2009 which enables you to link a Windows drive letter to a physical device giving the HDD serial number. It also has a wide range of reporting information for all types of drives. I hope this helps others with my problem! jaysachs.
