Hello Alphamale,

If you mean the removable disks, then do you have a media card reader installed on your computer? These will usually show up like this with a drive letter per card slot of the media card reader.

If this is the case, then you could check the Hide empty drives in the Computer folder box in Folder Options like in the tutorial below to have these drives hidden until you actually insert a media card into one of the slots.

Drives - Hide or Show Empty Drives in Computer Folder

Hope this helps,
Shawn

That was already checked. So i enable Don't show hidden files,folders and drives. That did work.
