Windows 7: Extra removable devices??

Extra removable devices??

I got a new desktop just under 2 months ago. It's not a big deal but it can bug me sometimes. This is what My Computer looks like:



OS C: is the primary internal HDD.
Local Disk L: is my 320GB external HDD.
DVD RW D: is my one and only CD/DVD drive.

E:, F:, G: and H: drives are non existent as physical drives installed on the computer, but they appear as options within the menu. How do I get rid of these if they don't even exist?

Do you have a printer connected to the computer or any memory card slots on your computer?

Only the Mini SD card slot is used.

4 cards slots = 4 removable devices!

I really should have figured that out myself.

But is there a way to make the other 3 devices never used to disappear from the menu... without uninstalling?

In this case, if I were you, I wouldn't try. Any time I've tried something like that, I just make things worse.
