I have a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista.

I got a strange message:

"Found new hardware

Windows needs to install driver software for your LATSHIITA DVD-RAL UJ-851r ATA Device." (replace II with I)

I have a DVD player on the laptop. But it isn't called that.

I looked at Device Manager and it lists this device along with an Unknown Device.

Is some software trying to trick me into downloading a virus? What to do?

Well, the strange device disappeared overnight. But I still wonder what the heck was going on.
