CD/DVD Drive showing up twice

I am having something strange occur here:

Drive D: DVD/CD-RW Drive (D:)
Drive E: CD Drive (E:)

I only have drive D... How do I get rid of drive E?

Sounds like you have a "virtual" drive mounted and is labelled as E:
Try right clicking in the unwanted drive and select 'Unmount Drive'. Hope this helps.:)

Yeah,that's under it,but it's a virtual device.
If you are using some program for mounting like PowerISO,Daemon Tools,set number of virtual devices to 0 and it won't be there. :)
