Non-existent Portable Device

'Device Manager' is showing a non-existent device 'H:\' under 'Portable Devices'. Why and how to remove? Thanks...

Have you looked in "computer" tab from the start orb. If it's there right click on it, select properties, in pop up select hardware tab and see if it's listed. If it is it should tell what it is. Next, click the tools tab at top in computer from orb, select folder options, in popup select view tab - scroll down to the hidden files and folders, select either show or don't show. Next, check in your bios for hardware tab and see what is listed. It could be picking up on a controller from the mobo for a device to add on like a floppy drive. If that's the case just disable it in the bios.

The only place it shows up is in Device Manager. This is a new install of Pro and no external devices have ever been attached to the machine. I did install VPC and XP Mode, but I can't see any reason that this would create this issue. I did an uninstall, but when I told it to search for new devices, yep there it was.
