HP Pavilion a6009n desktop. . .
I created a new account on my computer and I'm trying to do what the subject line suggests using the wizard, but when I get to the part where there is a drop-down list entitled "make disk on this drive" (or something similar), my DVD drive is not on the list. It is listed in "Computer", and I use it all the time so I know it works correctly. Anyone know how to remind the wizard that the drive exists?

Thanks for the reply Anon. I was thinking of a CD, not a DVD. I have since learned that MS has not given that functionality so I put it on a flash stick. Thanks anyway for the suggestion. (Do people still use floppies?)

I need help on this topic. I stupidly did not enter a password when I set up my user account on my new computer. So, I wanted to create one and found out I had to create a password reset disc. I put a SanDisk USB 2.0 flash Drive into the USB slot in the front of my computer (it recognized it as drive k: - but the Wizard wants me to put something in drive F: or drive G: I am new to Windows 7, and I tried to find the familiar "tree"(that I don't know where to find anymore) that led me to find out what drives besides the DVD D drives were located on my new PC, and where I could find them - or why the drive was called drive K : - where to find drive F: if it wasn't the name of the drive I put the flash drive in? I am competent on the computer, but haven't had any recent computing experience (my last PC ran Windows 98 - but I have XP experience). Just need some help and need to be pointed in the right direction. THanks.
