I tell you one thing....your system was infected or is infected with a malware which added some registry keys in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services section or somewhere else. I got a same question at EE let me see my answered profile and will let you know.

Thanks

LOL... This is why you ASK folks!

Use

DD --list

this will display the infromation you can use for all your drives.

For example, my USB Card Reader's Memory Sticks slot would be:
\\.\Volume{5ae37e41-e47c-11d8-9922-0040ca62463e}\
