Mystery disk in DISKPART

I went to clean all a SSD tonight and I find in list disk there is a disk with no media see pic - in that I have my large data disk showing now whereas when I had just the OS drive in I still got this disk. .

I have unplugged all drives bar the C: drive and it still lists this disk that does not exist.

Any ideas please

Hi John,

Do you by any chance have some device connected such as a printer that has card reader(s) ?
If you do, disconnect the device(s) and see if that helps.

No David and even trying the procedure on the 10 machine has got five of those no media disks showing and the only thing I can think of is that extra disks is the machine picking up the empty SATA ports for some reason??

I did use Partition Wizard wipe to clean the partition to 0"s as it would not do the disk as a whole so I am left wondering if the drives I am trying to clean are any good..

John here is a shot of my Gateway, it has an 11 in 1 card reader, does your pc have a card reader ?

The words No Media under Status is the clue

Ok Jack when I get home I will

Brian no mate the Ivy Bridge -P8Z77-V has six SATA ports yet it showed only those three drive options ?? and yes that no media one just could be the card reader which means it isn't necessarily showing those other ports or any drive plugged into them, plus the card reader is plugged into the board if my memory serves me right - not a SATA port.
Edit I meant to add the Sandy Bridge is showing all ports as per your pic

Sata ports do not show up in Diskpart

If you have a card reader plugged in then it`s the card reader, don`t worry about. March on my friend

Ok mate I just thought because it said disk it automatically meant there was a port involved.

Please plugout anything and everything from the USB ports of your PC - except of course your USB Keyboard and mouse - and check what shows.

I replaced the CMOS battery in my computer. When I restarted, the computer installed some driver. I now have a F drive which was not there before. It belongs to my Lexmark printer which has a card reader built in. How can I delete the F disk?

Mystery disk Q:
Don't know when this showed up, but I have a disk entry in the Computer folder - assigned Q: - which doesn't exist. There is no physical drive or partition and it doesn't appear in Disk Management. Right clicking on Q: and selecting properties says the drive capacity is zero bytes. Any idea...
