I have a number of inoperable disk devices - detected by Norton 360 Diagnostic Report. And having recently had a number of varying problems, seemingly unrelated, (windows games have empty folders for one), I was wondering if these hardware devices can be 'recovered', or alternativley 'removed' (Don't think I need them). Have no idea how this happened. The properties menu of one of these 5 devices shows the text "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19). Not sure what to look for, or where to go to resolve this. CHKDSK(s) appear to find no errors on my HDD or external USB Seagate, and Norton 360 virus scans/windows defender scans also come up 'clean'.
