USB Drive Letter Manager 4.8.7.0 (64-bit)
Take control over the drive letters assigned to your USB devices

USB Drive Letter Manager (USBDLM) allows you to decide which drive letters are given to your USB drives, MP3 players, digital cameras, or most other storage devices that you attach to your computer via USB.

Are you tired of the same device always getting a different drive letter, for instance? USBDLM can save your preferred choice to the device in an INI file, and then it'll always be assigned the same letter in the future.

You can also have the program intelligently assign drive letters from a list, depending on criteria like the active user, volume label, drive size and so on. So you might have small USB keys always assigned to K, L or M, say, while larger external backup drives get X, Y or Z.

You might choose to mount the drives as folders on an NTFS drive, perhaps ensuring that C:\USB\Corsair actually points to a USB flash drive.

There's an option to hide card reader drive letters unless they contain media.

And you're able to customise your own autorun options, for example launching a backup program as soon as you connect an external USB drive.

There's plenty more, too, however accessing all this power isn't exactly straightforward. USBDLM is a service, and there's no interface provided to configure any of its features: instead you must edit an INI file to get everything working as you'd like. This isn't particularly difficult, but you will need to spend a while reading the help file to discover what's on offer. If that may be an issue, check the online documentation before you download for a taste of how the program works.

V4.8.7.0 brings:
    •Bugfix: Since V4.8.0 crash USBDLM on logout when a virtual volume (Subst, Network or TrueCrypt drive) is present and on some other occasions
    •New: UsbDriveInfo keeps device which are prepared for safe removal in the list
    •New: UsbDriveInfo detect media changes by means of Windows notification messages instead of polling once a second
    •New: Under Windows 7 and higher UsbDriveInfo can attach and detach VHDs, under XP and Vista if VHDmount from Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 is installed in its default folder, thus the vhdmount.dll is found in %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Virtual Server\Vhdmount

Verdict:

If you don't mind editing an INI file to set everything up then USBDLM will give you a huge amount of control over your USB devices, their drive letters and how they're used

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
