What am i doing wrong here? I need to not show the removable drives that have no media in them. I modified the registry and set the pictured value to 1
changed this value to 1
i killed the explorer.exe
i restarted the explorer.exe
still the same thing

i took in folder options and selected hide all empty folders
i also took the check mark out of general>show all folders

the removal drives still show.

Please help thanks!

I would just go into the Disk Manager and take out the Drive letter.
