    I have no idea how this happened, but my drives in my computer are all screwed up. My D: drive which is my dvd burner is labeled as CompactFlash/MicroDrive and has the thumbnail for that. It's also under it's own group marked C. My E: drive which is my cd burner is labeled as a memory stick and shows the memory stick icon and it under it's own group marked M. My F: drive which is actually the CompactFlash/MicroDrive is labelled as an SD Multimedia card and shows the SD icon. All the other drives are right, but they are all under their own groups and everything is crazy. Any help would be much appreciated. See attachment for a screenshot of my computer.
