My pc has a dvd drive and a dvdrw drive,but if i go into My Computer it shows 2 dvd drives and a dvdrw drive.The "real" drives are D and E,Is it safe to get rid of F and how do i go about it.

A card reader in your pc? (smart card's for camera's and the like) Some pc's will retain the drive letter.

Some burning programs (I think Pinnacle is one) create a virtual dvd drive. I've no idea why and I stopped using it as a result.

Could this be the reason?

Hi crosstrainer , nope , no card reader onboard.

ventanas,don't use Pinnacle either.

Is the non-existant one?

Any mention of it at all. The other two are genuine. It's a virtual drive installed by something. Try deleting it from device manager and then re-boot. If windows doesn't find it again you should be ok.

Uninstalled it ok ,but it repeared on startup!!!If it's not doing any harm can i just ignore and continue on my merry way?
