I should know but obviously dont. Bought a barebones system not too long ago. I recently tried to burn a DVD, only to realise that I dont have a DVD writer, I transferred the CD writer from my old PC into the new one. Now the question.......In My Computor I have four "Devices with Removeable Storage" showing A is a floppy, D a DVD, E is a CD-RW, F is another CD drive. Strange thing is I dont have an F drive. Why does it show up ?
The drawer does not open when requested for E. To be honest I dont know if I have any virtual Drive software installed, I have recently installed UltraISO as I wanted to burn an ISO image of Mandriva, otherwise I have been using CD Burner XP Pro. None of my drives record DVDs, I know because when I misguidedly tried to burn one, the media was not recognised, hence this query.
I have just taken a look into Device Manager and the drive doesn't exist there. I then went to My Computor and right clicked properties, and basically it is the Hard Drive, the same values are repeated if I investigate drive C and drive E.
What is its significance ? Is it just an error or something sinister ? Should I just delete it from My Computor or do I need to uninstall it properly ?
ive one drive on my laptop this is partitioned ie C drive and D drive in my case. The C drive is 36 gb and the D drive is 4 gb on the D partition are the recovery files. Ive also a F drive which is an external hard drive
Double click the E drive to see whats stored on it.
there is nothing sinister,dont delete it or uninstall it. right click each drive properties check used space/free space on each one
