it might be that the usb drive was not turned on when you rebooted.
how about changing the drive letter of the cd/dvd to "Z".
this would take it out of the way so on reboot/plug in the usb drive would be the "D".

In Windows XP, Drive D was my Western Digital My Book 250gb USB 2.0 Hard
Drive. Drive E was my DVD/CDRW Drive. After a successful Upgrade, The two are
D is the dvd/cdrw drive and E: is the USB Hard Drive.
This caused programs to malfunction after the upgrade!
I used the Disk Managment Console to switch them back. Okay fine. It worked
for a couple of reboots. Then magically out of nowhere the problem returned.
The drives were swapped back were they originally were after the upgrade.
Once again, I had to do the stupid disk managment trick.
Whats up here? Why isnt the changes sticking. This is becoming problematic.
I think I will leave my computer on until this little quirk got fixed. Will
not reboot unless its absolutely neccesary.
