My Dad has an ECS P4VXASD2+ and a Celery 2.3ghz chip running XP Home. He has a CDRW (D and a dual layer DVDRW (O installed.
When I open Explorer to browse his drives I see 4 different removable media drives listed (not counting his floppy drive). They are listed as D:\, E:\, N:\ and O:\, 3 CDRW's and 1 DVDRW. I was able to view a DVD that was in the "O" drive and I can read a CD that's in the D:\ drive, but the other two drives don't allow me to explore anything and ask for media to be inserted.
I know, I look at his drives and wonder why he has such small partitions that make it necessary to have a drive "O:\", but that's another subject entirely!!
But, what I can't figure out is: Where did those two other "ghost" drives come from?? I've tried to delete them and can't. I've gone to Device Manager and uninstalled them and they still show up when the computer is re-booted. They display in Device Manager as SCSI drives and as far as I know he doesn't have any SCSI devices or cards installed and never has had on this installation of windows.
Could it be something in the registry? I'm just not sure and hoping for some direction.
