Drive letters not avialable for network mapping in Windows 7

I have a Windows 7 workstation that shows to have a removable device connected to drives H, I, J etc..  I am guessing someone removed a usb device improperly and the drive letter is still associated with it.  How can I remove these drive mappings so I can use those drive letters for network mappings?

I have tried net use H: \D and its still there.   Can I just delete the registry entry?

Well, you can go into control panel - advanced - computer management - local storage and just change the drive letters associated with the card reader to X Y and Z?
