Hello madx, and welcome to Seven Forums.

These drive letters would be for each slot the your card reader has.

You could set Windows to hide empty drives in the Computer folder to have them not display. This way only when you insert a card into a slot will that slot's drive letter show.
Drives - Hide or Show Empty Drives in Computer Folder
Hope this helps,

Brink thank you for your quick response. I built this computer and never put a card reader in and up until recently those drive letters were not there. I think these drives showed up after I was using power iso and for some reason that I cant remember now in the program I mounted multiple drives. The drives were never there before and they aren't doing anything other than annoying me because I can't seem to figure out how to get then to go away. I did try to un-mount them from power iso with no luck among other things, I also tried option one in the link you sent again with no luck. I was not sure if my updated info would change your opinion about the solution or if I should try the other options.

If you have not already, see if restarting the computer will unmount them for you automatically.

What options do you have when you right click on them in Computer?

Hi madx,

Run Power ISO,then Tools > Virtual Drive > Set Number of Drives > Disable
