[SOLVED]Removed HDD, it was replaced by a fake CD drive.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi!

Recently I removed 1 HDD from my computer (E:) but then its letter was immediately taken up by a fake CD drive, and I cannot remove it. When I put the disk back on, it had a different letter, resulting in my shortcuts becoming problematic.

How can I remove the fake drive from my system? It is invisible in Device Management and anywhere else, its only visible in My computer (picture below). Also, cannot use its letter elsewhere.

Thanks in advance!

The in the Disk Management tool, right clic on the CD drive and select Change Driver Letter ... and replace the CD letter to something else, then do the same for the HDD and put back the original letter.

Check the Device Manager and try to uninstall the virtual CD drive from there.
