This hardware icon I have circled below loads automatically on startup even though there are not disks inserted in the drives. How do I change it's setting so the icon will only load when there is a disk inserted into the drive and will disappear after the disk is removed? When I left click on the icon it shows the drives G H I J listed as being in use when they are not. They are not even USB drives they are camera memory card drives which I never use.

It's not going to hide the icon because it thinks the drives are in use. The problem is that it's showing the G H I J drives as active when they're not. Can I shut these drives down some how since I never use them to where that would stop the icon from showing?
