Removed flash drive showing as second dvd drive in device manager

By larrycleve ·
I removed a flash drive from my Windows 10 PC. It shows now as a second optical drive in device manager. I've included a speccy report. http://speccy.piriform.com/results/6FQPfKgqV6MWtqgWOaGdAzc . The incorrect drive is the SAMSUNG File-Stor Gadget USB Device. In disk management I changed the drive letter to Z and disabled it. I tried uninstalling it in device manager but it comes back on reboot. Is there a way to permanently remove it?

For the kind note and for reporting back about the solution.

We're still in shake down mode it seems. Hoping for the best!

Your seagate disk is showing some problems.

Perhaps something to keep an eye on.

I just keep it in case I run out of space on the ssd. I definitely would not keep anything critical on it and I do backups.
