Unknown Drive showing up in My Computer -- Hot Swap bay error?

Hey guys, I've had this issue before, and the only way I was able to resolve it in the past was when I reinstalled Windows 7 when I got my new SSD.

I just noticed it today, but there is an extra drive in the My Computer window, I use TrueCrypt as well as a hot swap bay for a SATA drive.

When I try to open it, the drive says Not accessible, Access is Denied.

Disk manager and Disk Part all only show my 5 physical drives that are indeed there.

How can I get rid of this extra drive?

I'm sorry. I'll have to slap myself with the n00b card on this one.

I forgot to search the forum. I think I may have found the answer.

Office 2010 starter. I did install that last night.
