My wife's Dell computer running Windows 7 Home Premium shows about 4 drives that are not there. They look like they are USB drives that did not disappear when the object was no longer there although we have not plugged any drives in.
My question is: How do I get rid of these indications? I have tried a number of things but to no avail.
At one time I was very up on the latest in the digital world but that was a number of years ago and I have not kept up. Any help would sure be appreciated.
These are most likely memory card readers (such as SDCARD, CompactFlash) built into the computer box (or sometimes the screen). They get assigned a drive letter.
If you want them to disappear, you can use DISK MANAGEMENT and set them to “assign no drive letter").
1. Right-click on the desktop MY COMPUTER icon
2. select MANAGE
3. in the list, double-click DISK MANAGEMENT
4. In the list that appears on the right pane, RIGHT-click the item you don’t want and select CHANGE DRIVE LETTER. Then, select ASSIGN NO LETTER
5. repeat as needed.

I'd bet money on that.
