    Goto Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management.
    In the left side pan, double click Disk Management and in the right side pan, select ur CDROM & right click it. Select Change Drive Letters and Paths... & a new popup window will be opened. Click the Change button and select Z as ur drive letter. Click OK & now restart ur system. Reinstall all ur games from ur CDROM & whenever U will connect a USB, CDROM drive letter will not b changed.
    That's the easiest solution as I think.
