replaced CMOS battery, now I have a mystery disk

I replaced the CMOS battery in my computer. When I restarted, the computer installed some driver. I now have a F drive which was not there before. It belongs to my Lexmark printer which has a card reader built in.
How can I delete the F disk?

Check the folder/files view and make sure "show all hidden files/folders" is unchecked in the folders options.

Thanks bassfisher, that did it. I had "show hidden files" selected earlier and forgot to switch it back.
