Do you actually have specific hard drives for your music, movies, etc? I currently only have what I have posted in the picture, and all the ones that read "Removable Disk" display "Please Insert a disk into (drive name)", so I want to get rid of them, (I have no idea what they are for, but if it's bad to get rid of them, how can I hide them?), and if at all possible MAKE drives specifically for music and movies and such, they are currently in my user documents but this would be much better for me.

[QUOTE=Opi8;987509]Do you actually have specific hard drives for your music, movies, etc?

Yes

I currently only have what I have posted in the picture, and all the ones that read "Removable Disk" display "Please Insert a disk into (drive name)", so I want to get rid of them, (I have no idea what they are for, but if it's bad to get rid of them, how can I hide them?)

They are your removable media drives (SD cards,Media Cards)

Very easy to hide these drives if you wish
  • Press [Windows] key to display the Start menu.
  • In the search field type "Folder Options" and validate by [Enter]
  • Open the View tab
  • In the options list, locate the line "Hide empty drives in the computer"
    • If the box is checked, readers will no longer appear empty in the explorer
    • If the box is unchecked, Windows 7 will behave like XP and Vista and will show all drives

, and if at all possible MAKE drives specifically for music and movies and such, they are currently in my user documents but this would be much better for me.
I partition my Drives to use just for Media,Movies,Music and such
plenty of guides here for partitioning hard drives

thank you very much, I haven't done this yet but am going to shortly, am sure it will work just fine. Very helpful, +rep by the way, I should have been more specific because I am still not entirely clear on this, but what I meant was do you have like, seperate internal hard drives (hardware), or is that the result of "partitioning"?
edit: I tried your method of getting rid of the drives, it was already checked. All it does is make them "dimmer", if possible I would like to not see them altogether
