My system shows an extra CD drive which I do not have, how can I get rid of this Icon or how to make system know there is no extra drive.

Thanks

Where does this phantom drive appear in Windows?

 

What are you looking at when you say "My system shows..."?

Do you have any virtual drive software (MagicDisc, MagicIso, Daemon Tools etc.) These programs create a Drive image so you can easily access the CD image that you mount with the program basically it's like if you download a "CD" on your computer but don't have the physical disc that program reads that "CD" file and acts the same way as a regular disc drive only virtually.

Thanks for responding, no I do not have any of those applications. The image shows in explorer, if I click on My Computer it shows the drives. I have an external drive with 6 partitions and once in a while I connect to it to do some chores, other then that I have not done anything exotic.
