More rom drives than I should have?

I have noticed that on 'my computer' I have 5 icons, 1 DVD ram drive plus 4 other removable disk drives namely:- (E) ram drive , (F), (G) ,(H) , (I),
The ram drive has a SATA connection whilst the others are physically none existant on my computer.
How do I remove these icons? I have tried right clicking but to no avail. Any help please?

I expect that you have a Card Reader, the slots on the card reader are given drive letters just like any other drive.

One could be a printer, but look in System Tools> Computer management > Disk Management and see what is showing there.

Morning Technotiger, my card reader only shows in Computer if there is something in it to read.

This is my own My Computer window, F:, G:, H:, and I: are the slots in my built-in Card Reader ...

OK, mine only shows Active drives, which is why I suggested a printer. I left it switched on and suddenly found I had an extra drive -:))

Hi, when my printer is switched on, the card reader in that shows as Removable Disk P:
