If you have added hardware,look in device manager Patso.

The different drive letters may be assigned to different cards if used in the reader.

I take it you have bought a multi card reader.

Have you tried inserting a card and seeing if the PC acknowledges it?

You should not delete any drives, if you know what drives was there before, at Card reader will only add the Removable drives. Mine all have Removable Disc with Drive letter

Install TweakUI ; click here

Under My Computer, select Drives - untick the drive letters you don't want to see.

yes skidzy its a multi reader how do i remove the other drives or is there a different one for each card thanks

  brundle 22:07 24 Jun 2007

There will be a different letter for each slot

Brundles advice looks the best bet,just hide the drives for now,though if you use a different card you may need these drives.

If only an sd card is likely to be used,Brundles advice should be fine.

just an update on the prob.what an idiot i am,i have just read the instructions on the card reader packaging and it says it will install four drives .one for each card,so this explains it all,thanks to all who replied and sorry for asking stupid questions without doing the basic things first,Patso
