    Are you using Alcohol 120% or other burning/drive emulation software?

    go to control panel > system > device manager

    uninstall the drive that you don't have and reboot the computer.

    Its a "virtual CD drive" that exists in name only, usually installed by an application such as Alcohol 120%, Daemon Tools, Clone CD and a raft of other CD copying programs. It's part of the fuctionality of those programs for it to need to exist.

    What problems is it giving you that you need to "get rid of it"?

    If it's really a drive that doesn't belong, try uninstalling ALL the CD drives that appear and rebooting.
