    Devices with removable storage combining devices?

    I have a Dell XPS 8000 with a 4 in 1 card reader. I also have a DVD and a Blu Ray drive installed in the computer.

    But in the descriptions in Computer, I get this:

    BD-RE Drive (G:) SD/mini-MMS/RS
    DVD RW Drive (H:) CF/MD

    I have even moved the two drives off of the SATA ports built into the motherboard to a Startech SATA III PCI card, but this behavior continues. I have even deleted the 4 drives in device manager and had windows reinstall them. I have also unassigned and reassigned drive letters to the card readers. Nothing I have done fixes the situation completely.

    The only progress I have made is that after moving the drives to the PCI card ports, I can put a disc into either drive and it will read it, and the description will change and drop the card reader description. But the other drive will keep the wrong drive description.

    What can I do to fix this?

    That is supposed to be colon and a closed parenthesis on the drive letters, not smilies.

    Do you get the same situation if both Optical drives have discs in them?
