I am running Windows 2000 on a new Pentium 4. My computer came with CDRW. I moved it to slave and installed a new DVD-CDRW Combo drive as master.
They both show up, but the combo disk is Drive "D", the CDRW is Drive "I".
In between, all these drives--- "E","F","G", and "H"--- suddenly showed up. They all just say "Removable Disc" Why are they there, and how do I get rid of them?!

Do you have a printer with memory card slots in it? Or some other memory card reader?

I think you've hit the nail on the head.d :thumbsup:
My computer has a 6-in-1 media card reader preinstalled. I removed those drives last night in Computer Management. Can I still use the reader without them?

Do they come back when you reboot? What you should do next time, is just change the drive letter for those drives in compute rmanagement.
