Windows XP Explorer sees two drives when there is only one - identical but different drive letters

Hi there,

Wonder if someone can help.  I'm running XP Pro and I've just changed the PC case and reinstalled the HDDs and so on.  XP is on a 74GB Raptor (C drive) and I also have two SATA drives.

Windows XP for some reason is now seeing them twice, listing them in explorer as:

Local Disk (C)
Docs 400GB (D)
Docs 400GB (G)
500GB SG SATA (I)
500GB SG SATA (J)

There are only two deves (bar the Raptor on C).  If I double click on any one in Explorer it takes me to the disk fine, but calles it by the drive letter I clicked on.

In Disk management, XP only sees the two drives.  They are marked NTFS and healthy.  The Raptor is blue whilst the shading on the top of the other two is olive green (don't know if this makes any difference or sense!)

Any help greatly appreciated!

Whoa, there are 33 Value devices in there.  Most are REG BINARY entries like:

All marked as Type: REG_BINARY

Most have entries like - Name: \??\Volume{a3a15f53-6fc6-11db-9e7f-806d6172696f}

Then there are 12 entries one afetr the other in a list at the end:

\DosDevices\A:

all the way to

\DosDevices\M:

Make any sense?  Thanks for your interest!

Any of them duplicated thier CLSID?

(this is the CLSID portion {a3a15f53-6fc6-11db-9e7f-806d6172696f}).

It should be able to fit in here, It would help if you exported that key, and then copied the text out of it, and pasted it all here.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Wow......Thats a tad wierd.....I honestly dont think yopu can really modify that key, without doing a repair on top of itself for the OS... I was hoping to see one or 2 duplicates, but you have drive letters all the way up to M (kinda lost count after that). I would think that you can safely delete everything past C, D and E (plus whatever you haev for Optical Drives, and Removable Thumb Drives), but Thats uncharted ground for me. And I only mean the ones that say

Name:            \DosDevices\*

Not the actual CLSID's. So...If it were me, I would backup the registry, and also set a restore point. Then I would remove the excessive values. BUT....I am just suggesting what I would do on my own PC, with the understanding, that it *might* not boot, in which a repair would be in order. I dont want to tell you to do that though, I would rather wait and see if someone else might have a better idea.....

OK, many thanks.  I'll hang on a little bit unless anyone else has any input and revert back if not.
