I recently started having some problems with my laptop. My flash drive always shows up when I plug it in as drive E:. however, now there is a DVD drive showing up there, and my flash drive won't show up. So my laptop is showing my DVD+RW drive (drive d) and a DVD drive (drive e). Is there something I can do to get rid of that? Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

This is my setup:

I have upgraded to SP2.

sounds like you have a virtual drive program running.

I know that nero has one out there, and you might have enabled.

I use daemon tools for virtual image mounting, but since you don't know about virtual drives, then you wouldn't have downloaded that one.

ACtually, I have daemon tools on my computer that I downloaded for a computer program I got from a friend. Could that be causing the problems?

Yes, daemon tools is a virtual cd/dvd drive program used to mount iso images to use cd's without burning them. Therefore it sets up a drive in my computer just like a normal cd/dvd drive.

Using windows xp you need to go into your computer management.

Right click on my computer, select manage. Go to disk management. Right click on the E: drive which is the daemon tools drive and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths".

It will bring up a dialog where you can change the letter. Pick f: or whatever the next unused letter is.

I haven't had my computer today. I'm going to go upstairs and try that as soon as I get done with some online stuff (no internet in my room)

If you want to disable the image drive, go to the control panel and click on 'Nero Image Drive' and hit disable first drive.

DONE

It's a fake SCSI CD-Rom drive...
