Non Existent Removable Drives in My Computer

I have been copying data from old IDE drives across to my new PC using an IDE - USB caddy. However, each time I connect a drive it creates a new drive letter in My Computer so I now have drive F: G: H: I: J: which do not exist and are not connected... How can I get rid of these drive letter associations? CHeers,

You sure you do not have a Card Reader on that PC

You could try this... Control Panel Administrative Tools Computer Management Disk Management Right click on the Drive letter/s Click Change Letter In the Menu one of your options should be to Remove.

Sorry, still trying to get used to how to do things on the new PCA format.

You could try this...

Control Panel

Administrative Tools

Computer Management

Disk Management

Right click on the Drive letter/s

Click Change Letter

In the Menu one of your options should be to Remove.

But as Woodchip says, make sure you do not have a Cards Reader installed. You do not want to remove its drive letters
