I have 2 different drive letters showing up for the same & only DVD drive in my system. Big question is why and how do I get rid of the 2nd drive
I did use Administrative tools\disk management to change the drive letter of my DVD drive & then this started showing up.
I have tried assigning the drive letter back to what it originally was and that didn't help either. One thing I have just narrowed down though. When the system boot up and I look at things with Windows Explorer evreything looks normal. Only 1 dvd drive is listed in my folder tree just as you would expect. I can put a DVD/CD in the drive & look at it's content. So far, So good, no extra drive showing up yet. Now as soon as I right click on that drive, lets say look to at it's properies, Bingo!!! Up pops the other drive letter. You can't actually use that "new" drive either. Even with media in the drive if you try to use it by clicking on it, it tells you to insert a disk even though there's a disk in the drive.
I have tried using Device manager to unisnstall, & reboot with with the same prevailing behavior.
I have tried powering off my machine, disconected the cables from the DVD drive, powered back up, powered back down, reconnected the cables & powered back up to let Win 7 rediscover the hardware to no avail. Win Explorer still report a 2nd drive letter as soon as I right click on the drive.
I'm running under Win 7 64bit with the latest Dopus 64bit installed
See the attached screen shot for further clarification.
Anybody got any ideas??
Thanks & have a great day!!
