is 1st drive the operating system-- usually happens if it has no xp discs'this is usually "D"
2nd drive is "C"which contains programs,files etc.
A drive is 3.5 inch floppy
B drive is now redundant ( it was a 5.25 inch floppy)
Any other drives are usually shown when being used -- eg memory stick, external drive or certain navigation devices

VOBID InstantDrive CD SCSI CdRom Device [CD-ROM drive]

Is a virtual drive.

Do you have some software that is likely to set up a virtual drive.

1st drive is operating drive d:

this is how to make the DVD autorun:
My Computer>Open> right click on device drive > left click properties > Autoplay tab > and choose from the options

I am puzzled as to why you say operating drive is d:

The Operating System should be on Hard Drive C:

Hardware DVD drive is D:/

other is a virtual drive on the hard drive buckeye wants to remove the virtual drive.


What burning programs do you have installed?

understanding dawns...

Don't understand 'virtual drive'
Burning program is Nero 6
CD's And DVD's can be run Manually and can burn ok
So it seems the hardware is ok but , windows media player and real player keep showing drives D: and E: and herein lies the problem.
