I Understand ... At least we've collected some info for a real expert when they show up.
How'd you get the SS shown in post #5 .. Want to see what mine looks like.

Hummmm .. Can't find the route to your SS #6
I'm thinking you don't have a problem .... and SS#6 is confusing you.

Do they show up as removable as per my SS#9 ??
