REMOVABLE DISCS FROM OUTER SPACE

By ohreli ·
I am running Windows 2000 on a new Pentium 4. My computer came with CDRW. I moved it to slave and installed a new DVD-CDRW Combo drive as master.
They both show up, but the combo disk is Drive "D", the CDRW is Drive "I".
In between, all these drives--- "E","F","G", and "H"--- suddenly showed up. They all just say "Removable Disc" Why are they there, and how do I get rid of them?!

Media card reader?

by gralfus In reply to REMOVABLE DISCS FROM OUTE ...

Do you have a module that reads media cards? Sometimes if you connect a 9-in-1 card reader, you end up with each slot in the reader getting its own drive letter each marked as "removable disk".

That must be it! The computer came preinstalled with a 6-1 media card reader. I removed those drives last night in COmputer Management. DO you think I need them after all? (I've never used one of these readers before)

If you've already removed the driver, don't worry about it. If you ever decide to use the reader, Windows XP will install the software for you. Other versions of Windows will ask for your CD.
