I have several Apacer 4GB Flash Drives.

As the title says, I deleted everything on one the other day and now it shows up as a DVD drive. Tried sending a photo to it but it doesn't show up in the SEND TO menu.

Can't find any way to reformat it, or in fact do anything with it. Will take it back to the shop tomorrow unless someone has a bright idea.

Cheers

Whoa. I've never heard of flash drives converting to DVD-Rom Drives. However I think you can try Disabling these Devices and try re-enabling them. Not sure if that will work but it's worth a shot.

Yes. I plugged several into the desktop last night and rebooted.

All showed up correctly with their own drive #s, so went into device manager and uninstalled the phantom DVD.
