Unable to remove "Removable Disk" in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-04-11
I have Windows 7 installed on my home PC. When I open "My Computer", is displays for me my C: drive under "Hard Disk Drives (1)", a "Removable Disk (G:)" and "DVD RW Drive (W:)" under "Devices with Removable Storage (2)" and four mapped network drives under "Network Location (4)".
The "Removable Disk (G:)" is greyed out and is possibly a USB drive or similar that I had plugged into the PC at some stage. However, I cannot remove this and I want to remove it from the "My Computer" screen.
When I right click on it and select "Eject" it just tells me that "An error occured while ejecting 'Removable Disk (G:)'." Is there somewhere I can go in registry or similar to remove this entry so that is does not appear in My Computer?
