Fake drives!!

I have just re-installed my win95 on my notebook, but two extra drives have now appeared!
They cannot be accessed and are called "non-permanent drive" (translated from danish).
I now have drive "a,c,d,e,f,g" where "d" and "e" are the fake ones. My "f" is CD-ROM and "g" is SCSI CD-R.

I have seen that other people have the same problem but doesn´t get an answer.

Before i re-installed win95 i used the command "format c:" to format my HD. Can it have anything to do with the formatting?

Depend on how large your Harddisk is. there has been plenty of story about Win95 format and large hard disk
Download "dsktsupd.exe" from Microsofts site. You find it on ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/softlib/MSLFILES/
The patch should fix the format problem.
You can then reformat your disk and reinstall.
