iMovie - Problem with external drive showing up twice

iMovie 7.1.4
iMac 10.8.5  

There's only one external hard drive - per attached screen shot.

How do I fix this?

Strange.

I would disconnect from the "Rainier" shared site and then reconnect to see if both E drives reappear.

I am guessing the shared drive is on a Windows host...

what options does right clicking give you ?

Ugo MenaCommented:
Exit iMovie.
From the Finder's"Go" Menu:  Type /Volumes/ within Go to the folder:

From there you will see your Hard Drive, any currently mounted servers/disks and aliases to old disks. Select any/all aliases that don't apply and throw them away.

Open iMovie. Should show only valid drives.

Re: ultralites comment (thanks!)

I had tried your advice.  "Volumes can't be found" (see screen shot).  Perhaps I should highlight the drive I'm having problems with before I type "volumes"?

So now that I see both "E" drives...here's my thought? Delete a whole drive? What if it wipes all the information out on that drive?  All my family pictures?  Is there a way I can test this without committing to a delete?

Ugo MenaCommented:
Any REAL drive will have the eject button next to it.

You should only delete the drives that are using an aliased icon.
Any/all alias icons will have a curled-up bottom left edge or an arrow.

Both drives have the eject button (see screen shot).  

When I expand the drives, they both have the same contents.

After a disconnect and reconnect to "Ranier", I see only one E drive - both in Finder and iMovie.  Thanks for your help - it's very much appreciated!
