Report back with your findings.
Thank you. I did this and looked specifically at the hardware tab. I am now convinced that they represent a multi-format removable card reader on the front of the box.
However, these only showed up on Saturday and the computer has been in use for about two weeks. What's more there are no removable cards in the reader and never have been.
I wonder if there is some way to turn off the display of these drives until they are actually in use. Perhaps I set a parameter in the startmenu properties or somewhere similar that made these show up. I have been fiddling--a little at a time but...
Thanks to Sarah, as well for taking the time.
