HP PC USB ports

Hi, I have just bought my daughter a HP PC, when I go into my computer all the USB ports are showing as removable drives, is there any way to stop them from showing like this?

Just for clarity. Is this a desktop PC? If so then sometimes a USB port is used to connect a multi-format card reader into the unit and these then show as removable drives to My Computer.

Actually some laptops exhibit the same for the same reasons. They are not really your USB ports

Presume if you plug something into a USB it works perfectly okay?

Check its not got a Card Reader as these are as above, but USB should not be

I think it has got a card reader, I think it has 3 card slots

It will show removable for each type of memory it can read
