Do you have built in flash card readers that you can use to read digital camera chips in? If so, they occupy drive letters.

Hello Joe,

You may have had your empty hard drives set to be hidden before, and somehow set them to show again. Setting them to hide again will have each one of them not be displayed until you insert a memory card in one.

Drives - Hide or Show Empty Drives in Computer Folder

Hope this helps,
Shawn
